— this could apply equally to Anglicans who wish to exercise what some are now calling “the Benedict Option” on a family level.

* includes the Athanasian Creed, a more detailed explication of the Trinitarian and Christological doctrines of the Christian faith.

I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which out techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.
