"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

Bishop Ackerman to Retire Effective November 1st

According to Stand Firm the Rt. Rev. Keith Ackerman, bishop of Quincy, Illinois, has announced his intention to retire effective from the beginning of November.

Bishop Ackerman's health has been troubling him for some time, and we should be sure to continue our prayers from his physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being and for the continued flourishing of his family during his retirement. He is scheduled to preach and celebrate at St. Vincent's Cathedral on Thanksgiving.

Is he proud that he is now "Anglican" while accepting his full pention and benefits from the Episcopal Church?

I am MORE than tired of ANON hiding on a blog. You are simply a coward and a bully as long as you can hide your identity. Demeaning a truly Graced man like Bishop Ackerman really does prove your nature.
