DALLAS, TEXAS, JULY 14, 2021 — Forward in Faith North America (FIFNA) is pleased to announce the election of the Right Reverend Dr. Eric Menees of the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin as the next President of our organization. Bishop Menees brings to the role an impressive resume of leadership experiences and a love for the Catholic tradition in the Anglican Church.
A group of people have met together in Reno and decided to officially form an Anglican church, Christ Chuch Reno. They're currently led by their senior warden, Larry Morris, a catechist, Chris Thomas, and they're regularly receiving the Eucharist from Fr. Tim Laudrie who lives in the area. Please keep them in prayer as they continue to worship and grow in Christ and prepare to call a priest to serve as their rector.
Alleluia! Christ is risen!
Yesterday the world stopped for just a moment as people held their breath when Judge Peter Cahill read the verdict of the jury in the trial of Derek Chauvin. In that moment people wondered, “Would justice be done?” “Will riots break out?” “Is anyone above the law?” “Will this decision be the match that sparks the fire or the water that puts it out?”
Ultimately, I don’t think that there is a definitive answer to any of those questions as a result of the trial or the verdict. A guilty verdict on all three counts does bring accountability but will not restore life to George Floyd. Riots did not break out but the viral pandemic of racism and inequality that underlies the deep fear and skepticism in the black and brown communities will not go away overnight or in a month or a year.
