Moving Toward Orthodoxy


« on: August 28, 2010, 09:53:49 AM »

I don't know if someone has ever asked this particular question,so I thought I would ask. Is there any dialogue at all between the EO and the REC? The reason I ask is that I have a friend who is an Anglican Priest in the REC,and would their priesthood be valid orders?

His priesthood won't be valid for sure. I don't know what is the answer for the first question.

There is dialogue between the OCA and the ACNA, of which the Reformed Episcopal Church is now a part.

Out of any Anglicans they would not be the closest to orthodoxy, so I doubt it. However, from what I remember, they might now be part of the Anglican Church of North America, which would mean that they have some sort of dialogue with the OCA.

Perhaps valid. But no one outside the Church has efficacious Orders.

The REC is low church Anglicanism. Or at least it seemed that way to me (if I'm wrong, please correct me). They left the Anglican communion because of the rise and influence of the Oxford movement.

Also, I think the OCA is interested in the Anglo-Catholics within the ACNA. Metropolitan Jonah called Calvinism heresy when he spoke at their opening conference. All the Anglo-Catholics there clapped there hands. The REC is Calvinistic to it's core.

Oh yeah, the REC is low church as it comes.  It was rather shocking to know that they were on board for the founding of the ACNA, seeing as how two of the break-away dioceses (San Joaquin and Fort Worth) from the Episcopalians are Anglo-Catholic to the core.  That's the ACNA for you, the continuing wibbley wobbley Anglican tradition of fudge.

I go to a non-denominational high school run by a local REC, and, based on one Holy Week service and accounts from my friends, the parish is relatively "high church" by Anglican standards, with the liturgy being sung in its entirety. While its roots may be in the Low Church movement, today it seems to appeal more to those who wish to escape theological liberalism while retaining an Anglican identity. That being said, there does seem to be an interest in Orthodoxy among some members, seeing as my English teacher (the priest's daughter) introduced me to Ancient Faith Radio, the writings of Fr. Alexander Schemann were distributed during Lent, and many families practice Pedocommunion.
