    Bulwarks of Anglican Belief: The Body of Christ (Ecumenism)

    The Miserable Offenders embark on a new series prying into the mysterious case of a fractured N. American Anglican church. What would it take for a unified, orthodox Anglicanism to thrive? The second such "bulwark" we address in this episode is that of "ecumenism" or the way that Anglicans relate to other churches.

    Bulwarks of Anglican Belief: Common Prayer (The 2019 BCP TLE Considered)

    The Miserable Offenders embark on a new series prying into the mysterious case of a fractured N. American Anglican church. What would it take for a unified, orthodox Anglicanism to thrive? The first such "bulwark" we consider is "Common Prayer" and we use Isaac's recent review of the ACNA's 2019 BCP (Traditional Language Edition) as a launching place for further discussion.

LeJacque ,

Great Resource!

Great content! Thank you for introducing me to so many interesting authors, thinkers, and concepts!

My only complaint is the background noise. Are you all having these conversations in a pub with a roaring fire in the background, or have these sounds been added for effect?

Good

Really enjoy the content, but epsiodes are released very inconsistently. I realize life happends and interruptions occur, but sometimes months go by before a new episode come out.

Bad speech grammer

I am a life long Angelican and was excited to come across your Podcast, especially the episode on "What is Anglicanism. I started to listen intentenly and to learn because I just started a seminary class on Anglicanism. That's where the excitement ended. You, Jess Nigro and your co-host seem to have a lot of good knowledge to dispence to the listener but you, Jess, have never taken a speech class. You and your co-host need to listen to your own speech and terrible grammer as you talk. Every few words are punctuate with lots and lots of "uhmn....lots oa "a".. and lots of "and uhmn a" on every other sentence. Listening to it is like running your fingernails down a chalkboard. Your Angelician knowledge is overshadowed by your terrible grammer. Oh well, my first impression is telling me to unsubscribe from your Podcast. I'll go back to listening to Arch Bishop Foley Beech, whom you gentlemen could learn a lot from, concerning putting a quality Podcast together.
