Congratulations to Father Matthew Harlow
Father Harlow was invited to do a presentation at the Mercer University in Macon, Georgia at the opening of the Bramlett Collection of C. S. Lewis material at the Tarver Library. In his presentation entitled C. S. Lewis in the Family and the Church, he discussed the relevance of C. S. Lewis’ Anglicanism and his universal appeal to Christians. Fr. Matt was a member of a panel that discussed C. S. Lewis and his writings. Father Harlow is the Rector of Christ the Redeemer Anglican Church in Warner Robins, Georgia.
Wishing everyone a blessed Lent and Holy Week and the Joys of the Resurrection.
Your Bishop,
+Walter
Letter of Thanks
Below is the text from a thank you letter from Fr. Steve and Aracelly Sommerrock for the APA’s support after a fire destroyed the house into which they had just recently moved.
“Dear Bishop Grundorf and the members of the APA,
Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The devastating fire that took 98% of everything we owned, except our two cars, has truly turned our lives upside down. We can only thank the Lord for saving our lives that early morning. We have also been truly blessed by the generosity that you all have provided us, both financially, in your prayers, and caring words. We are humbled by this and as we look forward to rebuild our lives, you will always be in our thankful prayers.
We will be moving to Summerville, SC sometime mid-May when the house we are purchasing should be ready and will keep the office updated.
Thank you again for taking us under your wings as part of your family in Christ.”
Steve+ and Aracelly
