Devices and Desires Podcast
This podcast comes from clergy and laypeople at Church of the Atonement in Buffalo and St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church in Tonawanda, New York. We're taking a deeper dive into the culture we live in!
We put out occasional documents to work through hard issues
- What is the Atonement? How do we approach the theological topic of the atonement brought by Jesus Christ?
- At What Age Should Children Take the Eucharist? A one-page summary followed by a more in-depth analysis
- Pride Month and the People of God: An email to the church in June 2021
We belong to the Anglican Church in North America.
“The Anglican Communion,” Archbishop Geoffrey Fisher wrote, “has no peculiar thought, practice, creed or confession of its own. It has only the Catholic Faith of the ancient Catholic Church, as preserved in the Catholic Creeds and maintained in the Catholic and Apostolic constitution of Christ’s Church from the beginning. It may licitly teach as necessary for salvation nothing but what is read in the Holy Scriptures as God’s Word written or may be proved thereby. It is obliged continually, and particularly in times of renewal or reformation, to return to ‘the faith once delivered to the saints.'”
Atonement is a parish of the diocese of Christ Our Hope, lead by Bishop Steve Breedlove.
The Diocese of Christ our Hope’s mission is to plant, equip, and multiply disciple-making Anglican churches, and to support and serve their people and leaders in Christian life and mission.
What is Anglicanism?
Anglicanism is a Christian tradition born out of the Protestant Reformation in England (16th century). However, a distinctive “Church in England” had taken shape centuries earlier when Roman soldiers and settlers brought the Gospel to Britannia. A lively, ancient church was born that was biblical, catholic, and mission-driven.
