We were blessed and bolstered, encouraged and edified, by Brother Anton Armbruster at our gathering on Sunday. His insights, wisdom, and humor knit us all closer to one another and to the Lord. Here is his message as a PodCast:
This course is a journey of discovery. You will discover Anglicanism’s ancient roots and biblical foundations. You will also discover ways you can grow in your own spiritual life through this expression of faith and its rich heritage.
The material is straightforward and easily accessible to those who are new to Anglicanism. The material is also comprehensive and serves as a way for long-time Anglicans to brush-up and deepen their knowledge of their faith. This journey will inform the curious about Anglicanism, help pastors prepare newcomers for Confirmation, and equip instructors to articulate what makes Anglicanism unique and why we cherish it so much.
Freedom and Formation: A Scriptural Theology of Eucharistic Blessings
This course examines the scriptural justification for believers to expect the Eucharist to be a place where God will come and bless them with freedom and formation.
This course provides a biblical and exegetical framework for understanding the meaning of the Eucharist. Within Anglicanism and the larger Christian Church, there are at least four streams of emphasis which arise from this biblical basis. Based on the biblical foundation we establish, you can examine each stream and better understand your own position on the theological landscape.
Ed and Suzy Speare of Virginia write, “We brought another long-hair female dachshund into the family to be a buddy for Stella who came to us in July. We got Claire in September from a different breeder in another state than Stella, but they are the same kind of dog and get along famously. The play together, chase around our front yard area, sleep at night in separate cages, but nap together as “bunk buddies” during the day. Stella is the more athletic of the two, and Claire is more cuddly and likes to be held. We are enjoying them immensely. I have put in a PayPal donation to ATLAS in Thanksgiving for Claire and am attaching a few pictures of both of them. Wishing you a blessed Advent and Merry Christmas.”
Ed and Suzy Speare of Virginia write, “We are once again a household with a dog. We brought Stella home on July 1, 2017, from Wilmington, NC. She is a miniature, long-hair female dachshund, Shaded Cream in color. She is a feisty little thing and is a change from our last dog, but we are adapting to each other as time goes on. In honor of her coming “home”, I am mailing a donation to Atlas in her name today. We are definitely using the pet prayer book with her!”
