We've Been At This For A Year Today!

From May 16, 2007:

Northern Plains Anglicans has no illusion about fixing The Episcopal Church. But Anglicanism is a worldwide Christian movement, not just a tiny, eccentric American sect. Tens of millions of people are finding spiritual treasure all over the world via Anglican Christianity.

So, here we are.

Let's bring back this lost treasure and share it with people all over the Plains. Welcome!


Well, we don't have a buffalo herd of ten million Anglicans up here, but this week we will host a good core of Anglican treasure hunters - some are driving several hours to be here and the momentum is good.

God bless all of you who've visited, thought about, prayed over and commented on this blog. Blessings on all of your inspired treasure hunting. And a blessing on all preparing to preach this Sunday...much easier to blog than to preach on the Trinity.

The blessing of God:The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit, be upon you and remain with you always. Amen.

Happy Birthday! Congratulations on all the national and local attention you've gotten in just one year. Way to go, Tim+!

Keep up the good work, my friend.

And consider using the Athanasian Creed for Trinity Sunday. I always do.

Congrats Tim+ I can blog like a house on fire but my first sermon due June 1 is a challange. I figured I had a couple of years before that time but +Malcolm accelerated it. Twenty minutes alotted, I have three done.

David+ - does the Athanasian Creed mention Ubuntu? Is it approved by Norwegian Lutherans?

Just kidding, of course. Thanks for the encouragement - and the liturgical idea! Will be using the Exhortation, btw.

prairiewords - remember, Abe Lincoln reframed the political identity of the USA with a speech less than three minutes long (he followed an over two hour message by a guy considered one of the great orators of the time, and who nobody can name today).

Besides, 3 minutes is wonderfully Trinitarian!

Sadly the bishop wants more than 3 minutes. I remember that speech, even Canadians were required to learn it. It would be a miracle if I could fix Anglicanism in that short time, I'll be happy not to hear snoring or 'what is he on about?' looks
