We owe a great vote of thanks to the organizers, wishing especially to mention Deacon David Moody, who himself was unfortunately unable to attend.

These pictures barely show the euphoria that we felt, the joy of our communion with one another. It was a wonderful time, and miraculously refreshing. Our love and joy was like that in the Acts of the Apostles.

Father Koller taught a fascinating class on formative influences on Anglicanism   Father Koller taught a fascinating class on formative influences on Anglicanism, focusing on very early versions of the Book of Common Prayer. He took us through a point-by-point comparison of the 1549 and 1552 editions, showing how heavily influenced Abp. Cranmer was by certain strands of European Reformation thought. The 1552 version is much more "Puritan" and anti-Catholic in substance, an extremism corrected in subsequent editions.
Fr. Davis spoke to us in very practical terms about the essence of ministry.

He also reminded us to learn to listen to God and to heed His voice.

He warned us about the need to be examples to the flock, to know our sources comprehensively (the Bible and the Prayer Book), and urged us to continue our educational process throughout our careers.   He also reminded us to learn to listen to God and to heed His voice.

We also received a short address by Fr. Amos of Portland, Maine, originally of Africa. He described to us the revival of religion in Africa, the marvelous grace of Christians there under severe persecution, and a recent commemoration there of the martyrdom of dozens of believers.
