Over the years of the ACW many have come thru our doors and many have left. A recent member in the Caribbean who left wrote to ask if the WELCOME-MAT is open, he would like to return, we replied...
Why did we say!!
There is no need for the WELCOME-MAT. If you ever were with us, no matter how long, you are home in the ACW, it is your spiritual-resting-place. Whatever reason you left is personal and you must work that out because in the service of God's-love there is room for all….ALL.
Why do we feel this way?
There are many-groups who call themselves Anglicans, but they spring-up and-fade-away, they promote beautiful websites and faces from all over who never
- Subscribe to the faith
- No active ministry
If they truly did, they would have found the Anglican-faith a strong, spiritual-home over 1000-years-old, a steady-ship in troubled waters, such as the present pandemic.
We are reminded of this by the words of Ms-Eliza-Edmunds (1869) “My faith has found a resting place”.
In the acceptance of Christ in your life many places of worship are abound, you must find a place where you are most spiritually happy, here we encounter the words of Ms Edmunds:
My faith has found a resting place,
Not in device or creed,
I trust the ever-living one,
His wounds for me shall plead.
You must ask yourself if you find comfort in your faith, and presence of God embracing your life , a place where you can find a spiritual resting place, Ms-Edmunds again suggests a way
Enough for me that Jesus saves,
This ends my fear and doubts,
A sinful soul I come to him,
He’ll never cast me out.
Beloved as-we-try-to co-exist with the pandemic we ask you to find comfort-in-your-faith, Hear Ms-Edmunds one last time in chorus:
I need no other argument,
I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that he died for me.
Hartley. Presiding Bishop ACW
