The highlight of the morning was Rick Warren’s address in the big tent. Now I have to admit I was not exactly thrilled when I heard the news a few weeks ago that Warren would be speaking. And I was among those here who asked, “Could we not find a good Anglican speaker?” But his message was excellent, timely, and moving. I won’t summarize it as I am sure it will be posted soon. But it is well worth reading and heeding.
But after his message, a lady asked us to get together in groups of four and share what God had told us.
I slipped out along with a number of others.
Earlier, during Morning Prayer, I finally rebelled against TEC 1979 Rite II by firmly saying Jesus descended into Hell (not just “to the dead”) during the Apostles Creed. I think I need to start praying for the extinction of Rite II in ACNA.
During Morning Prayer, David+ Short gave a good message from Acts 5. When he phrased the apostles situation before the Sanhedrin in ways that obviously paralleled the travails of many who have left The Episcopal Church for ACNA, there was not a little laughter.
Beforehand, one bold gentleman took my “Kiss me; I’m Anglican” t-shirt literally. I’m thankful this is not TEC General Convention. (Now I need to hover around some hot Anglican women.)
