“If” by Rudyard Kipling, is one of my favorite poems. Each stanza begins with “if” followed by a summons to maturity. My favorite stanza is “If you can fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds of distance run…”. While I’m not entirely sure, I believe Kipling is suggesting that not all minutes are created equal. Some matter more than others. In our next sermon series “The Unforgiving Minute” we will look at important minutes in the lives of a few biblical characters. What made the minute important? How did they respond? How did their faith inform their response? I look forward to studying them and learning from their example so that we, like them may fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds of distance run.

Education & Formation May 12-June 16 will offer two courses:
 
Early Church History & Church Councils: This class will explore church history by looking at the "ecumenical" church councils, the doctrinal beliefs expressed by the creeds that came out of them. Taught by Arthur Freyre, this class will be followed by a class this summer on Anglican Church History taught by Rev. Sam Pascoe.

Conversations With Jesus: This Bible study series will explore various conversations with Jesus from the Gospels, both to deepen our understanding of who Jesus is, and to contribute to our CtK missionary partnership with Getachew. Part of our work on this summer's trip to Kenya will be to lead a group of evangelists through a simple series that they can use as they minister to the unreached. In order to prepare this resource, we will go through the studies here, and flesh out illustrations, applications, and teaching points that will be a help for our missionary partners.

The Anglican Church  Christ the King is a member of the Anglican Church in North American and the Diocese of the mid-Atlantic. Both distribute regular updates and newsletters. You will find information about the Anglican Church in North America here - information about the Diocese of the MidAtlantic here .
 
Ministry Update   Sojourners is the name given to the ministry we began in 2016 as we intentionally opened our doors to Michel. Like so many, Michel had fled the violence of his own home and found a new home with us. Due to the exciting and likely possibility that Michel will soon be reunited with his family of four, we have not yet expanded this ministry. Our goal is to first provide for this dear family and then prayerfully consider expanding this ministry to others. For more information, please contact the coordinator for this ministry, Jack Rusenko at jack@rusenko.com .
