Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people.

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. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F.

AEFC 2014: Mr. (Rev. Dr.) Timothy George

Lex orandi, lex credendi -- "the rule of praying is the rule of believing." This phrase, attributed to fifth-century theologian Prosper of Aquitaine, points to the intimate relationship between Christian worship and Christian belief. While Christian belief informs the character of Christian worship, Christian worship profoundly shapes Christian faith. Worship shapes not only the substance of our faith, but also the ways in which we inhabit and live out that faith. This forming and informing power of Christian worship is often referred to as liturgical formation. Liturgical formation is the focus of the second annual Ancient Evangelical Future Conference, June 5-6, 2014. The conference will be hosted by the Robert E. Webber Center and held at Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, Pennsylvania. Framed in the context of Christian community and worship, drawing upon the best of the Christian tradition, and featuring speakers from a variety of denominations, this conference promises to inform, encourage and refresh all who attend. For more information please contact Joel Scandrett, Director of the Robert E. Webber Center.
