Dear Friends and Well-wishers,


Please accept this Very Sincere Appreciation from St. Philip the Apostle Anglican Church, Arlington Texas, to you our Friends and Wellwishers for honoring the Invitation to our Harvest Thanksgiving & Bazaar last Sunday (October 25, 2015) and thus, glorifying God through the support of the Mission and Ministry of Our Lord Jesus Christ.


We had a very good Harvest Thanksgiving & Bazaar. And this was possible only as a result of God’s Goodness, and through your attendance and support. You are the “hands” of God. Your Love, Support, and Good Fellowship at the Harvest/Bazaar is a testament of your love for God. You braved the weather, drove from far and near distances and came to our Harvest, and you offered to God, supported and honored our respective Mother of the Year (Mrs. Caroline Ojo) and Father of the Year  (Atty Charles Maduka - Loya Eziokwu) Honorees.


Every one of you is special and appreciated for your love and support. But it is, however, impossible to list out, mention, or specifically address and thank every one of you by name in this medium. Please, for now, accept this as a sincere expression of our gratitude and recognition of your love for God and for our Church through your offerings and sacrifice of time and finances for the success of this year’s Harvest Thanksgiving and Bazaar.


In due course, we will specially and specifically express our gratitude to you in private communication and medium.


Most importantly, I pray upon you the Blessings of God Almighty, the Creator and Giver of ALL Things. May He fulfill the desires of your heart and may His goodness and mercy follow you all the days of your life; in the Name of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Our Savior. Amen.

A Pastoral Letter from the Bishop

Dear Friends in Christ,

We rejoice in today’s ruling by the Texas Supreme Court overturning the summary judgment in favor of The Episcopal Church. The Supreme Court ruled that the Trial Court erred in deferring to the TEC rather than subjecting TEC’s property claims to the same neutral principles of law that apply to everyone else. The Trial Court must now reconsider the merits of the case based upon neutral principles of law, and we are confident that we will prevail when TEC is subjected to neutral principles of Texas law. In sum, while today’s opinions are not a final victory, they indicate that a final victory is only a matter of time.

The decision in our case must be considered in the light of the Supreme Court’s ruling in a related case, also announced today – that of the Church of the Good Shepherd, San Angelo.  Here too the Court reversed lower court opinions in favor of TEC and directed the trial court to decide that case based upon neutral principles of law, rather than deference to an hierarchical church.

Notably, in the Good Shepherd case the Supreme Court ruled that a not-for-profit corporation in Texas can change its articles of incorporation and bylaws, and that such revisions are secular matters, not ecclesiastical ones. The Corporation of our Diocese, which holds title to all our church property, is governed by Texas corporate law and has authority to control its own affairs without interference from TEC or other parties.  TEC’s argument – that its national officers can remove officers of a Texas corporation by decree – simply doesn’t comply with Texas law.

As you know, TEC’s claim to our local church property is based upon what is known as “the Dennis Canon.”  However, the Supreme Court has ruled that any trust that might have been created by the Dennis Cannon was revocable under Texas law. Our Diocese never acceded to the Dennis Cannon when it was formed, and our Diocesan Convention specifically revoked any such trust interest by TEC more than 20 years ago.  Today’s decisions effectively remove the Dennis Canon as a viable argument in Texas property disputes. 

We wish to express our gratitude to the justices of the Supreme Court for the hard work that went into these two cases, as evidenced by the time it took them to reach a decision.  We also are deeply grateful for the counsel and guidance of our team of lawyers who are representing us in these legal proceedings – Scott Brister, Shelby Sharpe, and David Weaver. We thank them for their wisdom and expertise.  

I am especially grateful to all of you, the clergy and laity of this Diocese, for your faithfulness and support during this trying period of time.  May God continue to bless you for your courage and steadfastness in the faith.  Patience and prayer are still required, but in the end, we will prevail.

The Rt. Rev. Jack Leo Iker
Bishop of Fort Worth
August 30, 2013

CELEBRATING
 THE BIRTH OF THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH: 
THE DAY OF PENTECOST.

 **************************************************

May 29, 2012, marks the 463 years of Publishing of
The BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER (BCP) in England in 1549.


“Common Prayer” means Public Prayer, (ie. The Book of Common Prayer means The Book for Public Worship). The BCP was originally published in English, so that the people could hear the Word of God and actively participate in the Worship of God in their vernacular. This means that the monarch and bishop as well as the priest and peasant all used this prayer book, in the language of the people.

The Book of Common Prayer was first published in 1549. It was briefly outlawed (1552) during the reign of Mary I. The Elizabethan Religious Settlement of 1559 was implemented to end the catholic – protestant controversy in the Church of England.  It included the Act of Supremacy – 1559 which returned ecclesiastical authority to the monarch.
 
 The Act of Uniformity – 1662 required the use of the BCP 1662 in all services of the Church of England.  The changes incorporated in the BCP 1662 included the use of the King James Version of the Bible for the text of the Epistles and Gospels, a Baptism service for adults and formal inclusion of the Psalter and the Ordinal. The BCP 1662 was for centuries, and to this day, "The Prayer Book".

The BCP has enriched and blessed Christianity, and indeed the world, with vast spiritual and liturgical resources, to the Glory of God!

The  Book of Common Prayer (Ekpere na Abu/Akwukwo Ekpere) directly contributed (more than any) to the development of the Igbo Language. By insisting on having the Holy Bible and the Prayer Book in the Language of the People, the Anglican Missions, over the centuries gave rise to the development of indigenous languages the world over. What a BLESSING!!
I pray the Lord bless His Holy Word and strengthen all who honor the Holy Writ, as “heaven and earth will pass away, but, My (His) words will by no means pass away”, says Christ in Matt. 24:35; Mark 13:31, and Luke 21:33.

May the Lord bless and keep us all, as we worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, and in the Name of Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
