Archbishop visits St. Peter’s

Special to The State Journal Published:

The Most Rev. Robert Duncan, Archbishop and Primate of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) and the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh, visited Frankfort’s St. Peter’s Anglican Church on Sept. 25. His visit to Kentucky also included stops at Asbury Seminary in Wilmore and at St. Andrew’s in Versailles.

Duncan met the members and toured the church before taking his seat in the bishop’s chair and speaking to those assembled.

He said that in the book of Joshua, the Lord told Joshua not be afraid as Joshua was about to enter the Promised Land. He had the same advice for those building St. Peter’s and encouraged them to ask the Lord for His direction as the congregation moves forward, also advising members listen to the Lord and each other.

According to Marjorie Shera, one particularly striking point of his advice was when he said, “The world is desperate to know what honest love is,” adding members of the congregation” know what that is.”

He also said the church is like a “city on a hill” when considering its location next to the Capitol. He said to “…build a city that will show people what heaven will look like…share the love of Jesus”.
