Hello everyone. I hope all of you are doing well. I'm in a bit of a weird situation. I've been looking for The Church™ since I was around 27 years old. I just turned 45. I'll go through these periods where I intently search and pray and read, only to get really despondent and slink back into the shadows of Agnosticism. Once again, here I am, lost in the woods and trying to find my way. I'm in a weird place where I'm pulled towards the East and the West. I'm one of the few people that have multiple rites of multiple churches within 100 miles of me. I have an Anglican Catholic Church near me (St. Francis of Assisi, G-3 Communion). I've attended two services and, while the church is small, the service is very lovely and the people are nice. The church itself doesn't hold to the 39 Articles except to say that they're part of its historical patrimony. I read through Bishop Haverland's book on the Anglican Catholic Church. I can't figure out why it (the G-3 Communion) wants to do its own thing and not just become Western Rite Orthodox or Ordinariate Catholic. The only thing I picked up on from the book that would put it at odds with Orthodoxy is that it can venerate post-schism Western saints like Francis of Assisi. There would be much more that would put it at odds with Rome. Do any of you have opinions on Continuing Anglican churches? Are they Anglican-in-Name-Only since they dismiss the 39 Articles and hold to the Affirmation of St. Louis instead? Sorry to ramble. I'm having a hard time focusing on one thing these days.
