Archbishop Kolini in Jackson

Archbishop Emmanuel Kolini of the Episcopal Diocese of Rwanda was recently here in Jackson. Since Derek and I both were out of town, Brad Mercer kindly agreed to do a "First Things" radio interview with him. Archbishop Kolini provided the ecclesiastical cover for the formation of the Anglican Mission in America - an effort by Bible-believing Episcopalians to present a Christ-exalting, Gospel-focused witness and ministry here in America, in the face of the increasingly unfaithful theological positions of ECUSA. There is a good article in the Clarion-Ledger on the Archbishop's visit, vision and mission, as well as on the new AMiA church plant here in Jackson, Holy Trinity Anglican Church (presently meeting on Sunday evenings at Ascension Lutheran Church, at the corner of County Line and Old Canton roads), pastored by our friend, Father Tim Smith. The picture, above left, shows Deb Primos, Archbishop Kolini and Tim Smith, and was taken by Rick Guy of the Clarion-Ledger.
