Churches

The paradox of this week

Our highly choreographed liturgies, our rituals of human achievement, may be tinged with failure.

Baptism and environmental stewardship

Canadian Anglicans have added a vow about environmentalism to their baptismal covenant. I worry that making environmental activism fundamental to Christian baptism obscures what is more fundamental to it.

Pentecostal/Anglican cooperation? New horizons in mission

Could the Anglican Communion be a “broker” for global mission? Pentecostals from Burkina Faso to Hong Kong to Brazil (and, let’s be honest, also in North Atlantic nations) are waking up to the need for better training for pastors. Anglican theological colleges worldwide continue to be under-resourced. Discipleship and education for all believers is a real concern, and all face huge challenges in the societies where they live, work, and do mission.
