What we believe about the Angels (Bishop Jonathan Baker)

Here is a great teaching given by our Bishop for Michaelmas Day. He packs into just ten minutes all the main things we need to know from Scripture and the Church’s teaching about the Holy Angels. This is certainly a video to share!

God, Science and Faith

Renowned geneticist, Dr Francis Collins, who led the team that mapped the human genome, directs the National Institutes of Health in the USA, and is at the forefront of finding a vaccine for Covid-19. He was been awarded the £1.1-million Templeton Prize for 2020. Previously - in his own words - an ‘obnoxious atheist’, Collins believed that all questions about life and the universe could basically be reduced to physics and chemistry. He has written about his journey to faith in God, and, in particular his examination of the evidence concerning the truth or falsity of religion. Eventually he read C. S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity. ‘Within the first three pages’, he writes, ‘I realised that my arguments against faith were those of a schoolboy.’

This video is Collins’ 2020 Templeton Prize Address.

Get your 2021 Ordo NOW - the best one available!

Without doubt, the very best ORDO available to western Christians is the one under the imprint of Tufton Books (i.e. The Church Union), still compiled each year by Father John Hunwicke, now of the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham. It painstakingly provides full information both for users of the Roman Rite (Third Typical Edition) and users of Common Worship. There is also guidance for those who use versions of the Book of Common Prayer.
