We had a delightful and Spirit-empowering day!! Since the Anglican Diocese of the South is a new creation within the past year, this was our first time to do this. For many of our presbyters and deacons, it was the first time or first time in a long time since the recent Anglican dispersia. What a great day it was! Bishop David Anderson preached encouraging the clergy to walk in faith and obedience; apply our faith in practical ways; serve under the godly authority and moment-by-moment leadership of Jesus; and to go deep with Jesus by continually talking to him. The Rev. Russell Buchard led a seminar on "Understanding the Baptism of the Holy Spirit," and The Rev. Canon Phil Ashey led a seminar on "Clergy Self-Care." Both were well attended. Lastly, the people of Holy Cross served lunch and provided warm hospitality to all who came.
