(or come back next week)

37. What other books does the Church acknowledge?

The canon of Holy Scripture contains all things necessary to salvation. The fourteen books of the Apocrypha may also be read “for example of life and instruction of manners,” but “not to establish any doctrine” (Articles of Religion, 6).

Pray for our mission partner
Incarnation Church
A new Anglican Church in Williamsburg

James and Anna Swynford
The Rev. James Swynford
Pastor, Incarnation Church

Recent news from James:
Those of you who have been praying, you’ve been invaluable to this little growing sapling of a church. Those of you who have given financially to this mission, you have been a lifeline as we build a self-sustaining financial base here. In my opinion, you could not be giving funds to a more important cause—building new, healthy local churches to reach our secular American culture.
(For further news about Incarnation Church refer to the letter from Rev. Swynford in the August Beacon.)

Women of Central Uganda Retreat

Margaret Kaziimba writes that the Diocese of Mityana is hosting a married women's conference - and they are casting a wide net: the women of six diocese in central Uganda are being invited. Light of Christ has helped in contributing to the fence project surrounding the women's building, and Margaret has expressed her gratitude for this extra sense of security. Because her women's ministry group will be providing meals and housing for the visitors Margaret requests our steadfast prayers for provision and blessing.

Truth Talk, The Christian Worldview Institute has launched "Truth Talk", a summer youth program for high school students. The program consists of weekly faith discussions and paying jobs to help the students prepare for Christian adulthood. Teams of teenagers will do residential maintenance — initially odd jobs outside the home.

We are looking for adults to serve as supervisors to accompany the students as they go out to job sites. This is a great opportunity for ministry to young people one-on-one. We need both men and women. All volunteers will be trained and screened in accordance with our Child Protection Policy. To volunteer or find out more, contact Jan Beckett at 580-5179.
