Angli-metho-costal: My Three-Streams Journey

November 17, 2016  |  blog, worship  |  No Comments

Angli-metho-costal.
That’s the term I’ve used when people ask me what type of Christian I am. For over ten years I’ve used that term to describe myself.

Born and raised in an Episcopal Church in South Florida, I quietly slipped out the backdoor of the Episcopal campus ministry at my Florida State University in 2003, while the ten people who still remained couldn’t stop arguing about the ordination of Gene Robinson – a sexually active gay priest recently consecrated as the Episcopal Bishop of New Hampshire.
