The Acts 8 Moment - Packing for the Wilderness Road

Acts 8 Moment Header"Then an angel of the Lord said to Philip, ‘Get up and go towards the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.’ (This is a wilderness road.) So he got up and went." (Acts 8:26-27a)

The Episcopal Church has gone through some tough times lately. At levels from national to local, a difficult economy and the fading cultural influence of Christianity have been hard on our institutions. But this is no time for gloom.

The Acts 8 Moment, launched over the summer at General Convention, is an informal group of lay and clergy Episcopalians across the country praying and acting for the renewal of the Episcopal Church.
