Other Links of Interest
White Horse Inn – A fun, entertaining, and theologically winsome radio program which discusses the truths of the Protestant Reformation, relating them to everyday life. The site has all the radio episodes for free. A great and entertaining resource!
Mockingbird – A collection of resources (a blog, sermons and talks, publications, etc) from ‘hip’ people who have a Reformational, Grace-centered bent. Worth reading!
The 39 Articles of Religion – here it is, the Anglican ‘confession of faith.’ You may have heard that Anglicans are ‘non-confessional’ — that is, some think that we don’t have a core and defining document that explains our beliefs. This perspective is fake news. The 39 Articles stands as the summary of Anglican belief. We are in fact a confessionally oriented Church, one that leans in a Reformed-ish direction.
The Book of Common Prayer (1662) – This is the ‘Standard’ Anglican Prayer Book across the globe. It was thankfully written before the 1970’s — a time in which hippies wrote GREAT music (the Doors are irreplaceable) and TERRIBLE liturgy. The 1662 BCP is an unparalleled liturgical document — it is enriched with Scripture, it is Gospel-oriented, and it unnervingly unveils the horrors of human nature with penetrating and re-stabilizing clarity. We would be at a loss without it, and Anglicans HAVE been at a loss without it. We use a modernized form of it every Sunday at Grace.
The Gospel for Those Broken by the Church – Dr Rod Rosenbladt offers the pure consolation of the Christian Gospel to those who understand what it means to be a bruised reed or a smoldering wick. Please listen. Then, re-listen.
The Bondage of the Will Explained – Luther’s most important work, The Bondage of the Will, is here unpacked by smarty-pants theologians. In The Bondage of the Will, Luther explains (in classically bold ‘Luther-fashion’) the core human problem: namely, that the human ‘will’ (which is directly linked, at least for Luther and Cranmer, to our ‘affections’) are by nature un-free and bound up in ‘an appetite for destruction.’ By the way, nothing is more obvious, and yet hidden, from our visage than the captivity of our faculties. But it’s true. And obviously! Alcoholics Anonymous recognizes this fact more readily than many Christians.
EFAC-USA (Evangelical Fellowship in the Anglican Communion) – This unique group combines committed Evangelicals (the old meaning of that word — that is, historic and confessional Protestants) in the Anglican Church in North America, the Episcopal Church, and the Anglican Church of Canada. Pastor Ethan is a member of this group.
