"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

UPDATED: Common Cause Evensong at St. Vincent's

The third Common Cause Partners-North Texas gathering for North Texas is scheduled for Sunday, September 21 beginning at 5:00 p.m. at St. Vincent’s Cathedral in Bedford, Texas.

The evening will begin with Evensong at 5:00 p.m., to be followed by fellowship and a potluck supper in the school gymnasium. At 6:15 we will hear from
--the Right Reverend Jack Leo Iker, Diocese of Fort Worth,
--the Right Reverend Ray Sutton, Reformed Episcopal Church,
--the Right Reverend Bill Atwood, Bishop Suffragan of the Anglican Church of Kenya in the USA, member of the International Conference of the Anglican Communion Network, and Secretary General of the Ekklesia Society, and
--the Right Reverend Nathan C. O. Kanu, Bishop Suffragan for the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA) and founding vicar at Christ’s Ambassadors Anglican Church (Oklahoma City OK).

The bishops will offer their reflections and guidance on GAFCON, the Lambeth Conference, and the future of Anglicanism, followed by a Q&A session.

This will be an excellent opportunity for North Texas Anglicans and Episcopalians to hear directly from our faithful bishops about these important events, without being first filtered through various media. These discussions will also set the stage for other upcoming decisions and events in the coming months.

Participants are invited to bring potluck dishes to share.. To pre-register for child care (number and ages of children), please call the cathedral office at 817-354-7911 by September 14, 2008.

St. Vincent’s Cathedral is located at 1300 Forest Ridge Drive Bedford, TX 76022. We are located three blocks south of Airport Freeway (TX Hwy 183/121) on the corner of Forest Ridge and Schumac Drive. Look for our 96 foot campanile!

For any additional updates about this event that may be needed, please see the CCP-NTX message board at http://ccpntx.forumco.com./ Registration required.

I hope you'll share a summary or commentary on the meeting this evening. I was unable to attend, much to my dismay.
