A relational network of Anglicans engaging emerging church & mission. (Bishop Protector, The Rt. Rev.Gregory H. Rickel, Diocese of Olympia).
Anglimergent is a 'big tent' community of diverse Anglicans. * We are not a discussion forum 'about Anglicanism,' but 'an online community for Anglicans,' learning from and with one another about the Anglican witness to the Christian Gospel, and our sharing in that witness.
Once you join Anglimergent, we invite you go to the 'GROUPS PAGE' and join your NATIONAL CHURCH and also your DIOCESAN GROUP. - If your national church (TEC, CofE, ACC...) or your diocese does not have a group, start one! - This way our Anglimergent conversation is 'glocal' - across national churches and diocese (global) AND specific to work within your own Anglican church body and your own diocese (local). Cheers and welcome aboard.
Dear Members, consider giving a donation to support Anglimergent. It costs hundreds of dollars per year to keep this NING Plus site online and ongoing labor each month to tend the site. Suggested donation $5-$15 per member per year, as you are able. Thank you :-)
As a professional Church Musician, I am essentially a pastor just like a priest, vicar, rector, or curate...etc. The only difference is that I help people worship through Music.
Here are some thoughts.
A Church Music Director and Pastor worry about the same things at the same points in their careers.

I've decided to start a blog on Church Music and the things that surround it.
Now, let's do some "disclaiming".
My opinions are not necessarily the opinions of my particular church, parish, or diocese.
I hope that people don't turn Social Media into something that harms another person or gets them "canned". That's not Godly and will probably make the Devil get you!

Sometimes technology can bring a twist to something familiar that makes it fresh and exciting. I discovered this while adapting the New Testament to an ebook reader format. When read individually, not as part of a collection, the epistles stand out for what they are: letters from Paul to his dear friends. Read more in my latest blog post!
