Aquí comparto sobre esta experiencia en la conferencia New Wineskins 2019:
A brief talk I gave at the New Wineskins conference in 9/2019 (Ridgecrest, North Carolina):
Preached at St George’s Anglican Church in Madrid (Church of England) in June of 2019.
Pleased to share my recent article from Anglican Pastor on the what Anglicans think about pastors and priests. Here is a section:
A bishop is priest among priests. He is a priest with a particular vocation to be a pastor of pastors. God knows that bishops in all the churches over the centuries have often failed in this office. But what we aspire to is something unreachable more often than not, but in the aspiration itself there is grace and failure and mercy and sin—all at once.
The bishop is first and foremost a priest, and only then a bishop. The bishop has authority for confirmation, ordination, and discipline.

Many churches throughout the world support cross-cultural workers in some way or another. Some pay, some pray, some visit. But what are key ways that your church can support your ministers serving in other countries or among other cultures?
Here is one idea, but read the whole thing for other ideas too:
- Write Us Back. We send out an update email once every 1-2 months, and it means something to us when people write us back. Everything from “great insights, we’ll be praying for you” to in-depth responses – we love it all. It communicates to us that people are reading about what we’re doing, and they care. One of the things that I’ve learned in our time in ministry is that people want to know that they matter… to God and to others. Missionaries, as it turns out, are no exception.
