February 17 2018 By dvirtue Coffee and Grace: God Moves in a Mysterious Way

An ethnic group of only some 5000 people, most of the Opo live on the Ethiopia side of the border with South Sudan in the Gambella region. The Opo's home area is cut off from the rest of Gambella about half the year because of the shallow, but very wide, Baro (also called Upeno) River. This probably helps to explain how they remained a people group unreached by the Gospel for as long as they did.

She preached recently in a sermon at Wadham College Oxford:

"Today, though, I am back in the Church of England witnessing to the extraordinary love that God has for all his creation. You know, the church can argue about theology till it is blue in the face, what it can't argue with is the testimony of incarnational truth. Those of us who stand tall and say: by the grace of God I am who I am. We are gay, we are Christian, and we are loved by God!"

January 31 2018 By dvirtue Bishop Bell, the 'Rebel Priest' and a catalogue of lies

However, Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, went on to claim that 'a significant cloud is left over [Bishop Bell's] name' and refused to apologise even after seven distinguished British historians wrote an open letter affirming there was no evidence that Bishop Bell had ever committed such an act.

One of Dr Gomes' qualifications for defending George Bell is his own experience of the corruption of the Church of England's operation of trial by tribunal.

Palestinian rhetoric, triggered by US President Donald Trump's announcement to move the US Embassy there from Tel Aviv, has been magnified by the President's recent decision to sever $65 million in US aid to the Palestinians.

His words could not be more clear: "But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed!

January 24 2018 By dvirtue Archbishop of Canterbury Responds to Historians letter regarding the Bishop George Bell case

"I cannot with integrity rescind my statement made after the publication of Lord Carlile's review into how the Church handled the Bishop Bell case.

January 16 2018 By dvirtue Chuck Murphy Remembered

I found Chuck to be a supportive colleague in whom I felt free to call on whenever his expertise or guidance was needed. No one had ever taught me as much about stewardship. Even after he left the Episcopal Church to form AMiA, he would always take my call. I had described him as godly, brilliant, and focused.

In the year that has just past I look back at my own limited involvement in the Church of Christ and am astounded at the changes -- both good and bad.
