Transitions

Event: The Ordination to the Priesthood of the Rev'd Michael Guernsey
Church: The Church of the Epiphany
Date: Thursday, May 9, 2013
April 18, 2013
Dear Friends,

Perhaps you noticed it, too. In the videos of the bombings at the Boston Marathon (played unceasingly on cable news outlets), many people, despite the natural impulse to flee out of harm’s way, rushed to the site of the explosion to help the wounded. What gracious demonstrations of courage and love.
 
In reflecting on those images of rescue efforts, I thought again of the stirring calls to go to the lost which I heard at the New Wineskins Missions Conference, held in Ridgecrest, NC during the week after Easter. Our God is an outreaching, missionary God, who loved us so much that He sent His Son to rescue us from sin and death. And Jesus in turn sends us out, as well: “As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you” (John 20:21).

Many of us were formed in a church culture that was what the missiologists call an “attractional model.” Do church well through worship and programs and ministries and you’ll draw people to your church. It’s a model that can be effective in an environment where many folks are looking for a church home.

But the Gospel and our 21st century American culture are calling us to a different model and a more biblical vision. We’re being challenged to embrace what’s termed a “missional” approach, in which you and I go out to bring Jesus to lost and broken people who need him so much.
 
One moving presentation at New Wineskins was led by the Rev'd David Case, who heads Truro Church’s ministry to reach and serve internationals who have come to that community. David facilitated a panel of mostly young adults who have come to faith in Christ from Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu backgrounds. They shared beautiful testimonies of the transforming power of Jesus Christ at work through those who took the initiative to reach out to them in His Name.
 
Nearly all of our communities have internationals—including university students—living among us, and we have unprecedented opportunities to form friendships and share God’s love with them.
 
All Nations DC, a church plant led by the Rev. Wright Wall, has been used by God to bring two Chinese university students to Christ in the first six months of this new church’s life! The most recent convert wrote these beautiful words:
 
I have joined All Nations DC Sunday prayer for over a month and decided to be a Christian in Saint Patrick Day. I am eager and so delighted to follow OUR LORD, Jesus Christ, and I am considering to finish the sacred baptism. Could you please give me further instructions as how to prepare for baptism? I am really look forward to formally join Jesus family. 
 
Many thanks! Blessings.
 
For ideas about ministry with internationals, contact the Rev'd David Case, at 703-273-1300 x530, dcase@truroanglican.com, and check out the website of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship’s international student ministry, www.intervarsity.org/ism, a ministry headed by Lisa Chinn, who, with her husband Leighton, founded the program at Truro many years ago.
 
The New Wineskins conference was also stirred by the address of Fouad Masri, founder of the Crescent Project, who so effectively challenged us to build relationships with our Muslim neighbors and co-workers. I’ve now watched his Bridges curriculum, available on DVD from the Crescent Project, and found it to be a very helpful and encouraging tool to equip us. All Saints’ Church in Woodbridge has used this curriculum and recommends it highly.


The question the Lord would ask us about the lost in our communities is akin to the question confronted by those on the streets of Boston: In the face of pain and brokenness around me, will I retreat? Or will I go forward with the love of Jesus and the good news of salvation in Him alone?

Let’s reach out. Let’s go to love and serve those whom the Lord has brought to us.

Virginia Supreme Court releases its ruling

The following is a letter by the Rev'd Dr. John Yates, rector of The Falls Church Anglican, to his parish:

We have received word from the Virginia Supreme Court that it has ruled in our appeal.  The Court’s decision reverses the trial court’s ruling as to a part of our church’s funds, and sends the case back to the trial court for further proceedings regarding that point. But the Court has affirmed the trial court’s decision as to our church’s real property and much of the personal property, meaning that our lands, building, and much of our money have not been returned to us.  The Court’s decision is now posted on its web site at  http://www.courts.state.va.us/opinions/opnscvwp/1120919.pdf

Please join me in praising and thanking God for his faithfulness to us despite this result.  Although this is not the outcome we had hoped for, our faith and our future do not depend on court decisions.  The Lord works all things together for our good (Romans 8:28), and we had purposed to praise Him regardless of the outcome.  It is difficult to face the prospect of losing things that are precious to us, but ultimately we do not place our hope in land, buildings, or money.  We have followed the course that we prayerfully believed was right.  We have consistently sought to resolve this dispute outside the courts.  We are grateful that we live in a country in which recourse to the courts was open to us.  And it is a privilege to count this cost to be obedient to Christ.

There is no doubt in my mind that we as a church are much stronger as a result of the trials that we have undergone.  Our witness remains strong.  God has enabled us to continue to plant new churches and establish new ministries.  And we have been blessed by the friendship, support, and assistance that so many other churches continue to provide to us.  It is the body of Christ in action.  And together we are determined to move forward in faith, to continue to provide a beacon of Christ’s love to Northern Virginia, and to serve our brothers and sisters in our community and beyond.

We will be in touch after we have had a chance to review the Court’s written opinion more carefully, and our vestry plans to meet tomorrow to prayerfully consider our next steps.  We will keep you informed of further developments.

In the meantime, let’s continue to pray boldly that God would expand our vision and do beyond all that we can ask or imagine in our life as a church.  Nothing is impossible with Him.  To Him alone be all the honor, praise, and glory.

South Riding Church celebrates new home

By Becki Neumann

We worship a miracle-working God, and he has been working miracles in our midst here at South Riding Church! Last June I was attending a ministry event in western North Carolina. Needing to be back for Sunday worship meant I needed to leave early. But before I left, Bishop Abraham Nial from the South Sudan, a Congolese pastor, and an Episcopal priest from Haiti offered to lay hands on me and pray for God’s blessing. I have very few absolute rules, but one of them is to NEVER turn down an offer of prayer. As these dear saints were praying over me the Lord spoke audibly to me, saying, “I am delivering that building to you.” I immediately burst into tears.
 
South Riding Church has been praying for a better worship situation for the entire 3.75 years I’ve been rector. We had looked at some properties, including one, a beautiful church, on Poland Road in Chantilly that we heard was closing. All were beyond our means in terms of purchase price. So we continued to pray. And then God spoke. What does it mean when God says, “I am delivering that building to you”?
 
Examining that statement led us to understand that God was going to do the work. When a package is delivered to you, you do not have to strive; you simply wait attentively for the delivery to happen. You prepare to receive the package. I began to pray, “Lord, don’t let us miss the delivery. Don’t let us miss what you want to give us.”
 
In late summer, 2012, the Lord delivered a lovely townhouse to us. It has more space, less utility cost, and better parking than our previously rented apartment. On top of that, the monthly rent is less. We did not go looking for it. It came to us. Was this that building, the one God was delivering to us? As we prayed into that gift, it became clear that this was only a sign of something greater to come.
 
The beautiful church building on Poland Road was put up for sale. We prayed that it would not fall to developers who would level it and build townhomes on the property. It didn’t. We heard that it was being purchased by another, nearby church. Our immediate thought was ok, so that wasn’t the building God was planning to deliver to us. We were wrong.
 
Pleasant Valley United Methodist Church (PVUMC) purchased the church building on Poland Road as a ministry base to reach into the surrounding area. Our senior warden, Paul Branch, is a Boy Scout leader in a troop that meets at PVUMC. When he heard of the purchase, he stopped in to talk with the pastor, who explained that they were looking to assist a small, struggling church in South Riding, one worshipping in a school. In addition, they were hoping to partner with another church for outreach and ministry in the area.
 
And the rest, as they say, is history. We negotiated a lease with terms so favorable it’s unbelievable. We pay the same rent to PVUMC as we did for the school and two storage units, which we will no longer need. We have total use of the building on Sundays until 1:00, plus a 24/7 office, permanent storage. The children’s ministry area is also a Christian nursery school, so the walls are adorned with scripture and biblical pictures. The worship space is large, bright, and inviting. It was pre-wired for sound and projection. Our first service was on April 14th, the Sunday we had months ago scheduled for confirmation, so Bishop John was with us to bless our new worship home.
 
We do indeed worship a miracle-working God, and we are blessed beyond measure. We continue to meet to pray faithfully so we can continue to hear God speak and move in obedience as He calls us to live fully into the new opportunities He is giving us. If you are in the Dulles South area on a Sunday, stop in and worship with us at 25350 Poland Road, Chantilly, 20152.

Come join our 2013 Women's Retreat

By Deborah Robbins

Living Fully in the Story God is Telling

The Lord invites us into the most beautiful relationship that exists: the relationship of the Holy Trinity. But are we chasing after the "better life" of blessings—wanting our lives to work well—rather than resting in the better hope of knowing Him well, regardless of circumstance? Come explore this question and others as we gather for a special retreat for women sponsored by Christ Anglican Fellowship, on Saturday, May 18 (9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.) at Rounton Farm in Orange, VA.

Our speaker is Libby Cannizzaro who currently serves as the Women’s Ministry Coordinator for The Falls Church Anglican in Falls Church, VA. Previous to her role there, she served for 21 years with Young Life, an international outreach ministry to teenagers, in Northern Virginia. She met the Lord in Young Life as a teenager in Southern California and has had a passion for ministry ever since. She grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles and moved to the Washington area after college to work on Capitol Hill, and after five years there she made her transition to full-time ministry. She has been trained under Dr. Larry Crabb of NewWay Ministries’ School of Spiritual Direction and has been trained as a lay counselor through Dr. Bill Clark’s Lay Counseling Institute. She is married to Steve Cannizzaro, and they both have a passion for discipleship within the faith community and are so grateful that the Lord brought them together to live out this dream as partners in ministry. 

The cost for the retreat is $35.00 and includes lunch.  Call 540-672-2793 (by Monday, May 13) to register.  Scholarships are available and guests are most welcome!  Click here for more information.

Experiencing the majesty of God's presence

By Craig Stephans

John’s gospel records a time when the crowds were leaving Jesus because of his hard sayings.  As he watches so many of those he loved turn from him, Jesus looks into the eyes of his friends and asks, “Do you want to go away as well?”  Speaking for the twelve, Peter responds to Jesus with these words that ring for eternity, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life,  and we have believed, and have come to know, that you are the Holy One of God.” It is this response by Peter that I think best describes my three days at Christian Healing Ministries in Jacksonville, Florida.

During the three-day Intensive Prayer Ministry retreat, it was as if I was in the very center of God’s presence hearing the words of eternal life whispered to me from Jesus himself.  He spoke to me in my spirit, through Prayer Ministers, in Scripture, and through the teachings of Francis and Judith MacNutt.  His words of eternal life entered into me like air filling me with much needed oxygen.  His sanctifying truth entered me like blood in my veins.  His perfect love entered me like the fulfillment of an impossible dream.  His arms embraced me during these three days like the bathing sunlight.  I was cleansed by his washing water of life that not only washes but heals, too.  I feel like the apostle John trying to describe his vision of the multitudes of heaven worshiping the one who sits upon the throne and the Lamb.  Words are insufficient to capture the majesty of God’s presence and redeeming works.  I believe in him more and know more certainly that he is the Holy One of God who has saved me.

For over 40 years, Francis MacNutt has been expressing God’s love and grace in the healing ministry.  For most of those years, Francis’ wife Judith has been an equally active partner in this ministry.  Since 1987, Christian Healing Ministries has been based in Jacksonville, FL at a quaint, cozy and serene setting where they host healing ministry.  I was blessed to be included in an Intensive Healing Ministry retreat for Anglican priests from the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic in the ACNA.  The retreat is sponsored by generous, anonymous donors.  When asked if I would like to participate, I could not type “YES!!” fast enough.  I had read all of the MacNutt’s books and spent a day with Judith a couple of years ago at a clergy-spouse retreat.  I knew this ministry retreat would be good…”Good” doesn’t even come close to what I experienced ...

Facing Fear - Trusting God in Sudan!

By Lindsey Feldman

“For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love and sound judgment.”
 II Timothy 1:7
 
Last summer All Saints’ Church together with two partner churches took Vacation Bible School out beyond its church walls and into the community.  Volunteers traveled to front yards, back yards and homeless prevention centers to offer VBS.   Twenty-nine of the thirty VBS sites were located within Prince William County; one family of six traveled quite a bit further to share the Gospel message by taking VBS to Sudan!   

As a result of their mission, 500 children were introduced to Jesus Christ and accepted Him as their Savior in a country where Christians are systematically persecuted and young people are forced into Islam.  The family heard over and over again that VBS had given the people of Sudan (churches, families, and individuals) great hopeHope that the people of All Saints’ loved them and were praying for them.  Hope that their children could be joyful and faithful in the midst of such oppression.  Hope in seeing their churches revitalized.  Hope that only Jesus gives.

This year, the persecution continues against Christians in the Sudan.  This mission-hearted family believes God is calling them back to Sudan to continue the work that began last summer.  They are also called there to equip others for ongoing ministry with children, teens, and adults.   

Help is needed to fund this important mission.  Roundtrip airline tickets for a family of six cost $8400.00.  Additional funds are needed to provide large canopy tents, transportation (children travel great distances on church buses and vans to attend VBS), cooking supplies, and other set-up necessities. 

Please consider making a donation to help cover the travel and set-up costs for the family or sponsor a child in VBS Sudan with a $10.00 contribution which will cover the cost of a child’s t-shirt, breakfast/lunch for the week and daily crafts.  Checks for either purpose may be made to  All Saints’ Church with “VBS Sudan” in the memo line and mailed to All Saints’ Church 14851 Gideon Drive, Woodbridge, VA  22192.

This year’s VBS motto is Facing Fear!  Trusting God! based on II Timothy 1:7; please prayerfully consider supporting this mission to tell His story in an area where great persecution exists.  For further information on VBS in Sudan, please contact Lindsey Feldman at lfeldman@allsaintswoodbridge.org  or 703-670-0093, ext. 109.

Lindsey Feldman is the Children's Ministry Director at All Saints' Church, Woodbridge, VA.

Plan for the Ancient Evangelical Future Conference

How do we read the Bible? How does the way we read the Bible inform our theology and ministry? Modern and postmodern methods of Biblical interpretation (hermeneutics) have tended to read the Bible as an isolated text with little unified meaning or coherence—but this has not always been the case.

Throughout most of church history, Christians have read the Bible under the guidance of the Rule of Faith and the great Creeds of the Church. How does such a creedal hermeneutic square with contemporary Christian and secular approaches to the Bible, and what are the implications of this approach for Christian theology, spirituality, and mission?
 
These questions will be addressed in Trinity’s first Ancient Evangelical Future Conference, June 5-7, 2013, at Trinity School for Ministry in Ambridge, PA. Hosted by the newly established Robert E. Webber Center, this Conference will draw deeply from the well of the Great Tradition. Conference speakers from across a spectrum of theological traditions will join us to lead this important and timely conversation.

An Invitation to visit Uganda Christian University

By Bishop John Guernsey

Uganda Christian University, a ministry of the Anglican Church of Uganda, is a dynamic force for renewal and development in Africa. It has grown rapidly in just 15 years from a small seminary to a full university of over 15,000 students. Known as “a centre of excellence in the heart of Africa,” UCU is equipping leaders for the church and the nation through schools of law, nursing, business, theology and more.
 
During a recent visit to our Diocese, the head of the University, the Rev. Dr. John Senyonyi (who goes by the title of Vice-Chancellor since the Archbishop of Uganda is the Chancellor), extended a special invitation to our Diocese to send a group to visit this extraordinary university in the fall, at the time of graduation during this, the 100th anniversary year of the founding of the Bishop Tucker Theological College, the forerunner of UCU.
 
My wife, Meg, and I would love to have you join us in this unique opportunity. As you may know, I was consecrated a bishop in Uganda and Meg serves on the board of Uganda Christian University Partners. Our son, the Rev. Michael Guernsey, attended UCU for a term during his college years. We have a great love for UCU and commitment to its ministry.
 
The dates of the trip are October 27-November 6. This trip will be a unique opportunity for people who are interested in Africa and in education to get to know this amazing university from the inside. The trip is organized by the local chapter of UCU Partners.

Those who come on this trip will:
  • Be welcomed by Vice Chancellor John Senyonyi.
  • Have orientation sessions with Dr. Senyonyi and senior staff.
  • Meet students and faculty and have opportunities to explore areas of particular interest.
  • See what makes UCU a “Centre of Excellence in the Heart of Africa.”
  • Get to know people at UCU. Each person on the trip will be matched with a “buddy” based on areas of interest. 
  • Live on campus for four or five days.
  • Participate in the graduation and baccalaureate “commissioning” services.
  • Meet leaders in Uganda and discuss the impact that UCU is having in the country.
  • Take side trips to places of interest such as the site of the Uganda Martyrs, Source of the Nile, and Ugandan wildlife.
  • Those who wish to stay longer in Uganda or East Africa after the rest of the group returns to the U.S. can arrange to do so, at additional expense. 

Departure will be in the evening on Sunday, October 27, allowing participants to be with their churches that morning and away from their churches for just one Sunday (November 3). A rough estimate of the cost of the trip is $2,500-$3,000.
 
Meg and I will meet the group upon arrival at the airport in Entebbe, Uganda (we will be coming from Nairobi after attending the GAFCON event there). We will be with the group for a few days before we must depart for a parish visitation back in Virginia the following weekend.
 
If you interested in this trip, please contact Jack Klenk, a member of Truro Church and the UCU Partners board (jklenk@cox.net or 703-550-8728). He will send you a brochure and preliminary itinerary, and additional information as it becomes available.
 
You can find out more about UCU here and UCU Partners here.

This trip is not limited to members of our Diocese, so please pass this invitation on to others who might be interested!

The Rt. Rev'd John Guernsey is bishop of the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic.
