No three-legged stools, split-the-difference "middle way" or other Episcopal urban myths...

Go to our Northern Plains Anglicans Facebook page (badge is over to the right on this blog). We have a series of detailed posts on Richard Hooker, who was commemorated on the church calendar this week.

Lots of distortions of what Hooker wrote have become common jargon among Episcopalians. The posts by Fr. Ryan Hall and a link to a piece by Benjamin Guyer will give some serious insight into what this foundational Anglican thinker was about, theologically and in historical context.

Some of what Episcopalians know about him is accurate, but some major ideas have been misrepresented to our denomination's harm.

Go have a look, and some good reads!
