Elinor Everywhere Posted June 25, 2012 Share Posted June 25, 2012 I'm very excited! After 17 years of non-demoninational church going, I've recently been attending an Anglican church. I LOVE it. I was raised Catholic, so it's familiar and comforting to me to return to a liturgical, high-ish church service. The congregation is so darn friendly and REAL. This is a big deal to me after all the Christian-ese I've endured over the past years. No offense to ANYONE who is non-denominational - my dh was saved in Calvary Chapel 30 years ago, and we love that organization. But for the past 2 years the Holy Spirit has prompted me to do this, but I was too chicken to step out in faith. Besides, I didn't know the Anglican church existed in the U.S. outside of the Episcopalian church. It was on this board that I first learned of the Anglican church in the U.S. I knew immediately that this was what the Lord had put on my heart. But I was still too chicken to do anything about it, as my dh was pretty anti-anything to do with a liturgical service. In my cowardice (:tongue_smilie:)I waited until he was in Asia (frequent occurrence) and my dd and I attended an Anglican church near us (only 2 in our entire area, and one happens to be within a 10 minute drive). LOVED it right from the start. Our wonderful rector preaches in an expository fashion, which is so comfortable for me and biblically spot-on. He was raised Baptist & was involved in Calvary Chapel for years, and knows his bible inside and out. What a treasure to us, who were a bit leery! Anyway, THANK YOU to those of you posting about Anglicanism. This post in NO WAY is derisive of any other denomination....just a wonderful story of following the Lord's prompting and ending up so much happier for it. We're heading out for the summer, but I'm already missing our wonderful congregation and looking forward to our return in August! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
