Anglican Church in North America

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Anglican Church in North America:

I am writing to you on behalf of Archbishop Foley, our Primate, who is on vacation and sabbath time until September. He has asked me in my role as Dean of the Province to serve in an interim capacity for him. Together with our Deans (+Guernsey, +Atwood, and +Allen), we are working with our excellent provincial staff to address needs as they arise. It is in this capacity that we have felt led of the Lord to offer some words of sympathy, prayer, and direction as two cities in the U.S. where we have churches have experienced horrible tragedy.

Our hearts are saddened and grieved by the devastating shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. To all of our brothers and sisters in these cities, we offer our deepest condolences and prayers for your communities. Thankfully, to our knowledge so far, none of our Anglican Church in North America brothers and sisters were directly affected. Even so, there are some things that we can do:

First, keep praying for the victims and their families. I know many of us have already begun to do this in our worship. Yet, the emotional, physical, and spiritual collateral damage from the slaughter of innocent people is far reaching. Let us continue to remember the survivors in these suffering families before the Lord.

Second, those of us in the immediate vicinities can seek ways to offer the compassion of Christ. We give thanks for the churches that we have heard from that are offering pastoral support and grief counseling. One act of mercy many of us can do no matter where we live is to give blood.

Third, pray for God to give our political leaders His wisdom. Ask for their responses to be what will restrain evil without making good people more vulnerable to wickedness (Romans 13:3).

Four, allow the Holy Spirit to create a greater passion in our lives to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to change hearts and lives. The Prophet Jeremiah says, “The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked” (17:9). The same prophet said, “I will give them a heart to know Me . . . for they will return to Me with their whole heart” (24:7). Only our God can change a human heart from evil to a heart filled with the Holy Spirit. St. Paul wrote these words, “If anyone is in Christ he is a new creature” (2 Cor. 5:17). He would know; he was once a murderer before he met Christ.

We have Good News for sad times. Jesus Christ “came not for the righteous but sinners” (Mark 2:17). Our Lord can turn hearts from hate to love. But we must witness to the transforming love of Jesus Christ more than ever before. How will people hear if we do not go?

May the Lord use the Anglican Church in North America to reach our hurting cities with the healing light of Jesus’ presence!

In Christ,

+Ray Sutton
Dean of the Anglican Church in North America

Dss. Annette Johnson, from St. Matthias Church in Katy, Texas, was recently interviewed for a series of podcasts about the Office and work of Deaconesses in the Church on Anglican Audio. Some of our other REC Deaconesses will be interviewed about their ministries in upcoming podcasts. You can listen to the first in the series here:

WHAT IS A DEACONESS?
Faith and Honor, Episode 34

One of the most interesting — and misunderstood — aspects of the ancient Church is the office of the Deaconess. Obscured in the contentious polemics surrounding women’s ordination, the office of the Deaconess has been largely forgotten. And yet it is an apostolic office, found in the Sacred Scriptures (the same passages used by advocates of women’s ordination).

We know of famous deaconesses in the early Church, and Saint Olympias featured in our banner image was a great friend of St. John Chrysostom. However in the post-patristic era, the office of the Deaconess became subsumed into the institution of nuns and monasteries, and slowly disappeared. Yet 1836 it was revived again, first among the Lutherans, and shortly thereafter adopted by the Church of England and the Anglican world more generally. One famous representative was Florence Nightingale, the legendary mother of modern nursing, who passed through the Deaconess training (having to leave before taking the vows).

In this fascinating episode we speak with a living and breathing Deaconess, Annette Johnson. She comes by to speak with us about the history of the office, its nature, purposes, and its important (perhaps essential) role in the Church.

has visited Croatia on May 18 and 19. He preached in REC Tordinci on 18th of May at the 20th anniversary of material and spiritual renewal of the church after the homeland war. During the war (from 1991 to 1995) church was heavily damaged. First liturgy after the war was held in January 1999.

On May 19th, at the worship service in Osijek, he confirmed three young girls. The church in Croatia was once again blessed with the visit of its bishop Most Rev. Ray Sutton.
