"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

King of Glory Anglican Church, Waco, Texas

This afternoon I joined the Rt Rev. Jack Leo Iker, bishop of the diocese of Fort Worth, in Waco for worship with the good people of King of Glory Anglican Church, our newest diocesan mission station. This group, started on the initiative of faithful lay people, primarily serves the Baylor University community. They are now meeting at 4PM on Sunday afternoons in a chapel graciously offered by the First Baptist Church of Waco on Fifth Street between the university's campus and downtown.

Four of these good people at King of Glory were confirmed by the bishop this afternoon and several more reaffirmed their commitments to follow Christ as part of this mission station.

This community has grown quickly, drawing both upon people with a background in the Episcopal Church and others who are "evangelicals on the Canterbury trail." I believe there are even a few who have not previously had a commitment to Christ as Savior. (Let us pray there will be more soon!).

Today there were thirty-nine communicants at the Eucharist. If you live in or near Waco and are looking for an orthodox Anglican place of worship, I heartily commend King of Glory Anglican Church for your consideration. You may find their website by clicking the title to this post.

The Dangerous "Gospel" of Joel Osteen

This video from "Sixty Minutes" does a good job of capturing what's wrong with the Joel Osteen's "megachurch" self-help philosophy that substitutes for the Gospel of Jesus Christ for so many Americans.
