A quiet movement has been happening in the American church over the last 15 years. In a world where meaning and mystery are increasingly hard to find, people are rediscovering them in traditional, liturgical denominations – notably the Roman Catholic, Anglican, and Orthodox branches of the faith.
What’s prompting this shift, and what can we learn from these older faith traditions? How is learning about church history from the past helpful in rooting our faith in the present? Rob Belton joins Andrew on today’s show to discuss.
Rob is a chaplain with the US Army and is currently serving in the Middle East. He is a priest in the Anglican tradition, serving with the Anglican Church in North America. He is passionate about helping people follow Jesus and connecting them with the Gospel-centered, sacramental life of the Church. He and his wife Meredith have been married 22 years and have four children.
