The Investiture of Bishop Roger Ames

Allison and I were able to participate in the incredible ceremony on Saturday seating Bishop Roger Ames as the bishop of the Great Lakes Diocese. Great service.  Holy Spirit anointed. Jesus Christ exalted.

Let us pray for Bishop Ames and his parish, St. Luke's Akron, as they begin their new ministry.  St. Luke's will be the Pro-Cathedral of the diocese.  They will have to leave their building in the coming months after purchasing it and their parishioners paying for it. Having been in the Episcopal Church before becoming Anglicans, the courts have ruled that even though the Episcopal Church did not pay for it or actually ownt i, the buildings and property now belongs to them. Unbelievable.  But our God is a faithful God, and He will be faithful to those who have been faithful to Him.
