We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month.

philorthodox: The APA Statement on the Vatican Announcement
Posted using ShareThis
This reflects the Romewardizing-angle of the Anglican Province in America (APA). Walter Grunsdorf, their Bishop, a man without a graduate degree, a baccalaureate graduate from a fundamentalist outfit---Bob Jones University--reflects on how this offer is the "fruit of 100 years of prayer."
Quite chaotically, the Reformed Episcopal Church pushed for a "merger" with the APA at one point.
We're not surprised by this announcement at all.
