Anglican Sojourner Fellowship E-pistle #4

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ,

This is the fourth general newsletter to those who have expressed an interest in the Anglican Sojourner Fellowship (ASF). It has been a very long time coming, but we finally have a web site up and running.

In the last e-pistle, I focused on three main issues which seemed to pose the greatest challenges in establishing an Anglican Sojourners’ Fellowship:

1.   The first was a growing awareness that the issue of isolation and  disillusionment is much broader and deeper than just the struggle of “Anglican Orphans” to find a nearby Christian community that is faithful to the Gospel.

2.   The second challenge was to harness the virtual world of the Internet as a way of reaching and supporting isolated Christians as a tool without being consumed by the culture of the Internet.

3.   The final challenge was to design an Internet presence that would foster “real” Christian community in the virtual world.

To address these issues, I affirmed my belief that prayer was and must continue to be the essential foundation.

Nearly six months later, I have to report to you that the journey has been much more complex, intimidating and, yes, rewarding, than I could have imagined – and it has only just begun. The result, finally, is a website intended to serve as the home base for the Sojourner community. It is very much a work in progress and will remain so as a measure  of the vitality of the Fellowship…
