An Improving Book

Now that most schools are starting up for the fall, how about picking up a good book–the kind of book most of our grandparents would have called "an improving book." With the Bishop on his way, let me suggest you have a look at any of Martin Thornton’s works. Father Thornton was a Church of England priest who was gifted in writing and giving spiritual direction. The best place to start with his works is Christian Proficiency, the foundation of his work that Anglican spirituality is focused in regular parish life, in the rises and falls, the rhythms of simple parish prayer and fellowship. Have a look at it and see if you don’t think it an excellent summation of the Anglican life. If you’d like to talk about what you find when you read it, give me a call. I’m always happy to talk about such things.

When was the last time you invited someone to come with you to Mass?

Tip of the Biretta

Many thanks to Helené for her gift defraying the expense of a new water heater. It’s nice to have hot water again!

The Bishop is coming; The Bishop is coming!

If that reminds you of an old movie, great. Even better though, it should stir us all into activity. The Bishop’s annual visitation will be the 16th of September. Let’s make sure that everything is ready for his arrival!
