  1. Not surprised at all. God bless you, Jeff. I may join you some day. We’ll see what happens.

    • Thank you, Kari. As you can imagine, it’s been quite a journey. Blessings on your journey, too!

  2. Which of the Anglican tradition’s gifts especially resonated with you? Which practices of the United Church still do?

    • I knew I could count on you to ask the incisive questions, Jake!

      The gifts of Anglicanism that resonate most strongly with me are sacraments, Scripture, liturgy, tradition. I’ve always been drawn to those elements, and I find there is more to feed me in Anglicanism: weekly Eucharist, four Scripture readings each Sunday, the Apostles Creed, ancient prayers, the connection back to the Ancient Church.

      For me, The United Church upholds the gifts of justice-seeking and fellowship. Many people in the UCCan seem able to find a living, vital connection to God in those practices. For me, it is a bit of a struggle: I need more help to be a good Christian, and the gifts of Anglicanism provide me with the support I need!

  3. Best wishes on your continuing faith journey. Thanks for spending some of that journey with us.
