"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Deacon Taichi John Araki

Taichi John Araki, a friend of several readers of this blog, was recently ordained a deacon in Christ's one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church in Nippon Sei Ko Kai, the Anglican Church in Japan. Deacon Araki, an alumnus of the University of Chicago Divinity School and Bishop Williams Seminary in Kyoto, will--God willing--be ordained a priest early next year. He has, however, already been given an extraordinary ministry opportunity. The new deacon has been asked to accompany the bishops of the Japanese province to Canterbury for the Lambeth Conference, where he will serve as the delegation's translator.

Congratulations, my brother. May God bless your ministry richly, Deacon!

Didn't I remember that he was named Athanasius as well?
