Greek Philosophers, Native Americans, and in fact every people throughout history has sensed that there is a spiritual reality to our world that lurks just beyond our senses. In this Sunday's Gospel reading, Jesus explains some truth of this world unseen and connects it to our experience as his disciples. When we remember the truth of our reality, our hopes and dreams align with Jesus', our anxieties settle, and our sense of mission quickens. Getting this right matters. This Sunday we will explore the World we want to see but only get glimpses of. Or do we only get glimpses?
LATROBE, PA (JUNE 28, 2014) - Today The Most Rev. Robert Duncan, first archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America, officially transferred the authority of the office to his successor, The Most Rev. Dr. Foley Beach. Over 900 church members, ecumenical partners, and international dignitaries attended a four day conference called “Assembly 2014” that culminated in the 10am service at the Basilica of the St. Vincent Archabbey in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.

By Dorothy Gager On “the Way”, we toured two World Heritage churches (8 A.D. and 9 A.D) at Oviedo, Spain after which it was time for lunch. We had a picnic lunch with us, so we responded to the invitation of a windy narrow road to drive to the top of the hill. A huge statue of a victorious and compassionate Christ with outstretched arms welcomed us. I would estimate the size of 100 to 150 feet. We observed pilgrims finding their way to the foot of this Jesus as we enjoyed lunch. Unaware of other people walking their dogs, taking pictures of the view, and lunching, the pilgrims cast their walking sticks and back packs aside, and reverently dropped to their knees at the foot of the Christ.

By Aaron and Corie AndersonWe want to draw on an over-used line from Forrest Gump to tell the story of finding St. John's Anglican Church. Finding a new church is "… like a box of chocolates -- you never know what you're going to get." Well, in finding St. John's Anglican Church, we have opened the box of chocolates, and discovered an amazing group of people, a place where Christ is truly present, and we are delighted to be here!
