Despite ever worsening budget problems, The Episcopal Church maintains an aging spy satellite over The Northern Plains. This captured surveillance picture shows several active Anglican bloggers. If you squint you can see Montana Anglican waving in the top left corner; Anglicat of Minnesota is walking her dogs just under the clouds at center-right; yours truly is fording the Big Sioux River under the smokescreen just below dead center. Wyoming's Eclipse was building a hardened position over to the left, but as you can see TEC's robotic intern from EDS got its robotic thumb in the picture. Fr. Chip Johnson managed to evade detection in the Black Hills (dark spot just right of the robot's thumb) - of course, most of us have trouble finding him sometimes.
Oh, back to the theme of this post, Katherine Cook at Montana Anglican says yes, Anglicanism is worth the witness. Here's an excerpt from her fine essay:
...Anglicanism still is a great bridge between the traditional Christian branches of the Faith and the evangelical Christianity of today. The beauty of Anglican liturgy is that it does reach back to the Churches’ foundations by recalling our Jewish and Catholic roots in its order of worship and readings. We are part of the temporal church ‘universal and triumphant’ when we worship as so many of our other brothers and sisters do in the Faith. Counter-balancing this history is a openness in Anglican worship to the music and worship of our evangelical brothers and sisters. Anglicans can worship traditionally and charismatically, without music or with electric guitars. They can kneel and stand, mediate quietly or hug enthusiastically. This ability to have strong ties with the past, inclusion of current Christian worship, and an openness to what God may lead us too for the future, is a wonderful aspect of Anglicanism. It is a blend I’ve never found in another church.
