"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

++Anis of Jerusalem and the Middle East Preaches at St. Vincent's Cathedral

Today St. Vincent's Cathedral had the honor of a visit by Archbishop Mouneer Anis of the Anglican Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East (++Anis is standing to my right in the photo above, in front of Dean Ryan Reed). The good archbishop preached at our 9AM and 11:30AM services and addressed our Adult Forum on topics related to the Anglican Communion's state of crisis and the present state of Christianity in his home country, Egypt. It was a delightful visit and we thank Archbishop Anis warmly for taking time to visit us and speak. He is a stalwart defender of "the Faith once delivered to the saints" and certainly deserves our prayerful support in his ministry.

Tomorrow the archbishop will join others, including Archbishop Robert Duncan, in speaking to the clergy of our diocese. They are in town for the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Anglican Relief and Development Fund. Your prayers for the assembled archbishops and the other leaders of the ARDF would also be greatly appreciated.
