I say again: PRAY

Visits to this blog go waaaaaaaaay up when I post something about the current Anglican/Episcopal struggles and controversies. Visitor traffic is more modest when the posts involve prayer, devotions or discipleship.

That's OK as far as it goes - people are free to read what they want. But there are much bigger, better Anglican news blogs out there and NPA is not envisioned as one of those.

But what I would say as a caution is that one day, maybe far away or maybe closer than we can imagine, God is going to set a bunch of us free to be His Anglican disciples here on the Northern Plains. Not mere critics of the Episcopal Organization; but a vital witness to the treasure of Anglicanism as part of the total Christian mission in this part of God's world.

So do pray. Pray for the Global Anglican Future Conference in these critical days of forming its action plan and public statement - seems like everybody has thoughts or comments but what they need right now from all of us is prayer.

Same with the courts, the Reservations (see posts below), the Presidential election and everything else that you might care about. Keep up your spiritual life - God values you beyond all "issues" even as you seek his will within them.

Glory to God whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine: Glory to him from generation to generation in the Church, and in Christ Jesus for ever and ever.
Ephesians 3:20-21
