Advent: Building Anticipation

By Shuler+ Griffin, interim minister at Fountain Anglican Even though my family was Anglican, I did not get to attend an Anglican church until I was 8 years old, when we moved into a city. I became an acolyte and always enjoyed the seasons of the Church, but Advent has been my favorite.

Giving thanks, even now

Thoughts from Lead Bishop Philip Jones on giving thanks, even in this difficult time.

From the Lead Bishop: Racial Reconciliation

By +Philip Jones Perhaps you have noticed, as I have, how certain causes or issues will flare up for a time, causing us all get all excited. Many of us get onboard, only to jump into the next concern that catches our attention. For some things, that’s okay. I get it. But there are other issues that deserve our engagement for the long haul. To stay the course, we have to be focused and intentional. We have to say, “I…

By Mike Blanchat, Executive Director of the AMiA and Executive Administrator of All Saints Dallas As we begin to recover from what felt like an endless election season and enter month eight of the COVID-19 pandemic, I wanted to write to you this month with good news: God has been preparing all of us for this season.

Fasting and Prayer: Authority and Connection

By Jay+ Wright, Rector of Saint Bartholomew’s in Dallas Fasting is a discipline God’s people have taken up for millennia, but it is not so popular in our current day. I’ve been an Anglican clergyman for a decade now, and fasting has been something I’ve been slow to practice. Maybe it’s my inner perfectionist? Or maybe I really love food? Sure, in Lent it’s easy to fast from social media (don’t we all need this fast more often?), alcohol, TV…

The Value of Prophetic Ministry

By Dave+ Larlee, Vicar of All Saints Dallas I was recently talking to someone who hadn’t attended church since childhood. After inviting them to attend an Alpha course, their answer gave me pause. “Why would I attend church? I already know what’s wrong with me.” I pivoted, changed my approach and offered to pray for them. As I invited the Spirit of God to bless them, I had a very faint sense that they had a gift to bring beauty…

Staying Connected and Leaning In: Singles in Church Community

Singles make up a huge proportion of the American population. A 2017 Pew Research study found that 42% of adults in the U.S. live without a spouse or partner. And, among those under 35, singles are the majority, comprising 61% of young adults. However, church congregations often do not reflect the high proportion of singles in the general population: A Barna study conducted around the same time found that less than a quarter of active churchgoers are single. Effectively reaching…
