Our Chapter Meets and Prays...

The American Anglican Council South Dakota chapter met as a house church today. The group continues to gain momentum, most recently cutting a check for California Wildfire Relief and providing significant prayer support (check out all the SD and Iowa names!) for the Diocese of San Joaquin Convention this weekend - a convention that made a momentous decision.

Our house church Holy Communion service included special prayer intentions for the San Joaquin Convention and for this week's meetings of the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA), meeting in Virginia. Canon David Anderson, leader of the American Anglican Council nationally, will be consecrated as a Bishop in CANA on Sunday.

The chapter now offers a weekly service in Sioux Falls, a monthly fellowship gathering and board meeting, and will have meetings in other places around the state beginning next year.

What an encouraging report. This past Saturday, I also attended an AAC chapter meeting here in San Diego, which included both Episcopalians and Anglicans under a variety of foreign oversight. It struck me that over the four years we have been meeting, what enormous changes have happened in all our church lives, but what a blessing it is to still meet together for mutual encouragement and the seeking of God's guidance.

Thanks, judith l! Hope that San Diego's fire affected areas continue to recover and praying protection from mudslides.

Say "hi" to our good friend Fr. Eric Menees if you see him!
