Canterbury Communities, our diocesan ministry to college students, is hosting an 8-week intentional community for missional leadership formation this summer, June-July.
Mostly unchanged since the 16th Century, Evensong continues to be one of the most treasured liturgies of the Anglican tradition, especially as celebrated in cathedral churches. Evensong has become a cultural pehnomenon in many parts of the country as a way to find inner peace through reflection and reintegration.

Distant Mirrors: Anglican mission history and the opportunities before us
There are significant ways in which our contemporary situation is unique and unprecedented. But in other ways we can find analogies in previous chapters of mission involving our forebears. What can we learn from these case-studies, and how would we apply this to our own evangelistic ministries?
The Rev. Dr. George R. Sumner is the principal and professor of mission at Wycliffe College, an Anglican theological college in Toronto, Canada. He was ordained in central Tanzania as a missionary from the Episcopal Church, and has also served in a variety of settings including a native mission in Arizona and a parish in a small town. He has a doctorate in theology from Yale, and has written books on the relation of the Christian faith to other religions, theology through hymns, and the nature of ordination.
