the summer ends and fall begins in late September there will
be an exciting conference taking place at St. George’s Church
on Stuyvesant Square (209 East 16th Street.) from 10
A.M. to 4 P.M. on Saturday, September
is the Annual EFAC New York Conference. EFAC New York is the
New York Chapter of the Evangelical Fellowship Anglican Communion
USA, which in turn is part of the Evangelical Fellowship Anglican
Communion Worldwide. EFAC-USA was actually founded in 1961
by this year’s guest speaker the Reverend Peter C. Moore who
also was the founder and first director of FOCUS (Fellowship
Of Christians in Universities and Schools), an organization
focused on presenting the Gospel and Christianity to teenagers
and college students. Currently, Peter Moore is the Dean and
President of Trinity Episcopal School For Ministry located
in Ambridge, Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh.
Church To Believe In
by Peter C. Moore (Latimer Press, 2nd edition, $16.95)
has also written a book, A Church To Believe In (Latimer
Press, 2nd Edition), which is a positive account
of why to be an Anglican. Moore presents six characteristics
of Anglicanism: Evangelical in experience, Catholic in spirit,
reformed in doctrine, Charismatic in ministry, Liberal in ethos
and Global in scope. As Moore discusses these concepts, he
introduces the reader to exemplary Anglicans such as Charles
Simeon, Richard Hooker, Hugh Latimer, who is the namesake of
the press and whose picture is on the book cover, David Watson,
Philip Brooks, Cyril Okoroacha, and Hannah More with a short
introduction at the beginning of each chapter, usually accompanied
by a black and white print portrait of the individual.
author’s participation in the Lambeth conference of 1998 as
well as his visits to Africa demonstrated to him that the worldwide
Anglican Communion is vibrant and ever growing, individual
countries have more Anglicans than all of Great Britain, Canada,
the U.S.A. and Western Europe. A Church To Believe In is
well-worth reading for what I have mentioned and for much more.
