ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Gillis Harp Proposal: A North American Affiliate of Church Society

Dear friends:
I have been active in evangelical Anglican circles in North America since the 1980s.  Recently, I have thought about establishing an organization that would bring together conservative evangelical Anglicans (both clergy and laymen) regardless of their current denominational affiliation.  While in Britain this past July, I was approached by a couple board members of the English Church Society and asked if I'd be interested in starting a North American affiliate of their body.  I am writing to ask if you would be interested in discussing the creation of such a fellowship.

If you are unfamiliar with Church Society, please click on the link below.
Please respond to this email if you would be interested in meeting sometime in 2012 to discuss this proposal.
Warm regards in Christ,
Gillis Harp

Thanks for the advisorial.

At this point, worth watching. Also, keep the "hand firmly on the wallet." REC is corrupted.

Why, pray tell, an REC email?

If you get a phone number, let me know.

Phil (to friends) and Don (to all others)

Phil, I do not believe that Dr. Harp is promoting the REC here. He simply wants to organize Evangelicals, hopefully Reformed Evangelicals, within the broader Anglican tradition. I assume that would include those within the ACNA, TEC, AMiA, and other "continuing" groups.

Since most of these denominations are corrupt to one degree or another, a parachurch organization might be the better way to go. Of course, Robin Jordan already has the Heritage Anglican Network. But nothing concrete has happened with that yet. What Harp is proposing is an actual and physical meeting together for prayer, talks, etc. At least that is what I'm inferring from the e-mail. You'd have to ask him to get more particulars of what he has in mind.

As for me, I'm dirt poor so I don't know if I'll be traveling anywhere at the moment:)

Does one need to be financially secure to be an Anglican? LOL
