The Anglican Mission in America Celebrates Five Years

[Anglican Mission in America] July 28, 2005--The Anglican Mission’s presence was not universally embraced. In fact, the fledgling group has faced tireless resistance, largely from those in the Episcopal Church (ECUSA) who saw the establishment of the AMiA as interference by Anglican leaders from other shores. But the AMiA has proven to be a breath of fresh Anglican air against the backdrop of ECUSA’s three decades long decline. Rwanda’s bold and prophetic act of establishing a missionary work in the United States is now the pattern for other global Anglican leaders, especially in the wake of ECUSA’s recent suspension from the Anglican Communion’s top governing bodies.
