Why We Do It

I’ve been reviewing reader/viewer comments and various email message concerning the Anglican Internet Church, particularly its various presences on the Web.  Two common threads, not actually spoken, are Why the Seasonal Videos; Why the Focus on the 1928 B.C.P.?; and Why No Actual Video of the author?   I hope the following provides readers/viewer with acceptable answers.

Seasonal Videos:  One of the original objectives of the AIC, when it was just the broadcast arm of St. John Chrysostom Anglican Church at St. Joseph’s Villa Chapel, Richmond, VA, was to extend the reach of traditional homilies and traditional local doctrinal teaching and Bible Study.  Today, the AIC reaches a broad audience in many parts of the world.  The Seasonal Videos, which will eventually include programs on the entire Church Calendar, offer viewers and listeners through the Podcast version, are a way of providing traditional teaching, easily-available, without either going over the heads of the viewers or insulting their intelligence — and giving them a glimpse of the treasures of Church art from both the Western and Eastern Church.

Why the B,C.P. Focus:  The greatest treasure left to Anglicans by the English Reformation is the American 1928 Book of Common Prayer (as amended in the 1940s).  The liturgies provided, especially for Holy Communion, provide a valuable link backwards in time to the early Church both at Rome and at Constantinople and at Antioch, Alexandria, Jerusalem and the many Christian communities throughout Asia Minor.  Every time an Anglican hears a Collect read he or she is reminded of the continuity of the Christian heritage which came down from the Apostles through the clergy, bishops, and archbishops who defended the Nicene Creed in the face of “reform” movements.  The Seasonal Videos, with their focus on how the Calendar is brought to life in Holy Communion or Morning Prayer, help Anglicans understand exactly where these beliefs came from, including the source of the Collects; provide the short summaries of the Epistle and Gospel readings, with appropriate religious art; and enrich the experience with commentary on appropriate Seasonal Music from The St. Chrysostom Hymnal, which is offered as a supplement to the 1940 Hymnal.

Why No Actual Videos of the Author:   All our video series, whether in the Bible Study, Seasonal, or Christian Education categories, are intended to keep the focus on the content.   Nothing would be gained by watching the author while he narrates a video.  In fact, I believe, such video content would take time away from both the Script and the extensive archive of icons, frescoes, mosaics, engravings, paintings, watercolors, illuminated manuscripts, bas reliefs, statues, monuments, and church buildings, all of which, I hope, leave the viewer reminded that 21st C. Christians are not alone!  We are part of a continuing legacy begun by the teaching, healing, preaching, Nativity, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ and by the untiring work of His Apostles, whether of the 1st C., or the 4th when the Nicene  Creed was written; or the 5th-6th-7th-8th C. when most of the Collects were composed; or in all the intervening years until the 21st C.  That legacy remains alive, vibrant, and threatening to the secular world as long as modern day Christians continue to worship God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, constantly reminded by the words of the liturgies spoken by millions of Christians who have come before us.

As always, thank you for your interest and support.  May God continue to bless you in all that you do in His Name!  Amen!

Glory be to God for all things!  Amen!

 

Trinitytide: the Teaching Season – Episode One

At last!  Glitches overcome (or fixed), on Wednesday morning I completed and uploaded Part 1 and Part 2 of Episode One in the newest AIC Season Video series, Trinitytide: the Teaching Season.  As noted in a previous blog posting, the episode ran too long and was split into two parts.  There is only a transition slide between the end of Part 1 and the start of Part 2 so viewers will need to watch Part 2 to hear the discussion of seasonal music for Whitsunday and Whitsun Week.

For thematic focus (after all, this is a teaching video series) I included a discussion of Whitsunday and a short history of Trinity season and its relationship to Pentecost in the new Trinitytide series.   Viewers will find an outstanding collection of illustrations in Episode One, with 15 of them on the first Pentecost.  Many are rarely seen in the Western Church, except among religious scholars and art historians.  The oldest Pentecost illustration was made in 586 A.D.  The most recent example was prepared near the end of the 19th or early in the 20th C.   Viewers will also learn about the 14th person in the Byzantine icons of Pentecost (12 Apostles, the Blessed Virgin, and — watch and find out).

Watch Episode One-Part 1.     Listen to the Podcast of Episode One-Part 1

Watch Episode One-Part 2.     Listen to the Podcast of Episode One-Part 2

Episode Two in the series will be focused on Trinity Sunday, First Sunday after Trinity and Second Sunday after Trinity, plus more seasonal music from The St. Chrysostom Hymnal.  I expect to have the episode ready next week or the following week.

As always, thanks for your interest in and support for this Internet-based ministry which seeks to teach traditional Christian doctrine and practice to the faithful wherever they live — and make it available 24/7.

May God bless you in all that you do in His Name!

Glory be to God for all things!  Amen!

Glitches & Other Issues

Last week I avowed to finish production of Episode One in Trinitytide; The Teaching Season.  Alas, glitches, several of them, caused me to delay production by one week.  In addition to typographical errors, difficulties with sentence structure, there is the fact that the final recording ran over 40 minutes.

The problem will be resolved by splitting the episode into two parts, with a transition slide at the end of Part One and a new opening slide for Part Two.   Part One will contain all the introductory material on Trinity Season as well as the B.C.P. readings for Whitsunday.  Part Two will not have a separate introduction but will continue where the first episode left off (with a new opening slide only) and include discussion of Monday and Tuesday in Whitsun Week plus seasonal music for Whitsuntide and Trinity season from The St. Chrysostom Hymnal.

All the changes have been made to both script and slides and I anticipate being able to record both Part One and Part Two on Monday.  Unless there are other glitches, I expect to complete and upload the finished programs before the end of next week, well ahead of Whitsunday.

Thanks for your patience, continued interest, and on-going support.

May God bless you in all that you do in His Name! Amen.  Glory be to God for all things! Amen!

Next Week: Trinitytide Series Begins

Next week I expect to post Episode One in the newest AIC Seasonal Video series, Trinitytide: The Teaching Season.  I have completed the script and slides.  There will be 20 illustrations, 15 of them of the first Pentecost.  The oldest dates to 586 A.D.; then a selection from the 9th C. and another from the early 11th C.  The “new” one is a fresco in Israel from the late 19th C.-early 20th C.    There is also a selection of seasonal music for Whitsuntid from The St. Chrysostom Hymnal.

For the sake of clarity of focus, I’ve included Whitsunday, or Pentecost to nearly everyone but Anglicans, in the opening episode.  The decision was based upon a desire to accommodate viewers from other denominations and make it clearer to them, and to Anglicans, how to adjust the labelling to the post-Vatican II system of celebrating Pentecost and virtually abandoning the centuries-old celebration of Trinity Sunday and the following season.  Western Christians have been celebrating Trinity since about the time of the Holy Roman Emperor Charlesmagne in Western Europe.

The pictures are, in my opinion, stunning and inspiring, both in the choice of detail in content and in the artistic and spiritual aspects of the style.  With the little research on my part I was able to have a better understanding of the intent of the Byzantine Church in its choice of both how and what to include.  Join me next week for a fuller explanation and links to the episode.

As always, thank you for your interest in and support for this Internet-based ministry.  May God continue to bless you in all that you do in His glorious Name!  Amen.  Glory be to God for all things! Amen!

Eastertide-2018-Episode Three

Christ-Ascension-Novgprod-14thC
The Ascension in the Novgorod style, painted in the 14th C., now in the Museum and Gallery, Bob Jones University, Greenville, S.C.  Public domain.

Last week I was so busy getting the garden ready for Spring and with issues related to my secular occupation that I just couldn’t put together my usual Weekly Update nor, owing to technical glitches with the Script/slide pairings, was I able to complete the final episode in Eastertide 2018 series.   This afternoon, I completed and uploaded Episode Three, which is focused on Fourth Sunday after Easter, Fifth Sunday after Easter (Rogation Sunday), Ascension Day and Sunday after Ascension. Not counting book covers and episode graphics, there are 15 illustrations, from the oldest surviving illustration of the Ascension, drawn in Northern Mesopotamia around 586 A.D. to an illumination for Ascension Day from the Bamberg Apocalypse, painted in the early 11th C., to several splendid Russian Orthodox icons of the Ascension by unknown artists and by the renowned Andrei Rublev from the 15th to the 17th C., to a relatively new stained glass window of the Resurrection from the 2nd quarter of the 20th C.  Note that all the traditional representations of the Ascension show the Blessed Virgin in the foreground plus the two men in white mentioned by St. Luke shown as angels, and a representation of the Glory of the Lord, usually a blue oval surrounding Jesus.  In one of the illustrations, by Italian artist Andrea Mantegna circa 1423-1424 and now at the Uffizi in Florence, Italy, the blue oval is formed by several angels.

Episode Three completes the series on Easter.  For thematic emphasis, I included Ascension Day and Sunday after Ascension in the discussion, which has the effect of completing the cycle begun with the Resurrection on Easter Day.   Similarly, I will touch upon Whitsunday/Pentecost at the start of the next series, Trinitytide: the Teaching Season, which should be available on or before May 20th, Trinity Sunday in 2018 A.D. The juggling for the Trinity series to include Whitsunday/Pentecost is necessary owing to the non-Anglican way, prevalent since Vatican II in 1969 A.D., of ignoring Trinity Sunday and counting the Sundays as being after Pentecost.   By making these adjustments, viewers will be able to follow the entire Church Calendar from Advent to Sunday next Before Advent in our Christian Education video series without missing any of the Collect-Epistle-Gospel pairings or missing any of the other changes (special verses or canticles and seasonal Propers).

Watch the video.    Listen to the Podcast version

Trinity-Title-miniI’ve begun work on the series for Trinitytide A.D. 2018, with a series graphic using Andrei Rublev’s c. 1420 A.D. icon in which the three visitors to Abraham under the Oak of Mamre represent the Holy Trinity.  Until the Renaissance, any representation of God the Father was forbidden, which they still are in the Eastern Church, which uses only images of Christ, who was seen by mankind.   The Holy Spirit is always the Dove described in the Gospels or a flame of fire described by St. Luke in Acts 2.  The type face is a new one I bought from a vendor for use with the series.  Each episode will include a small logo in the upper left of each slide without the icon.

Thanks for all the support, especially the viewing of the Good Friday videos.  May God bless you in all that you do in His Name.  Glory be to God for all things!  Amen!

Eastertide 2018 – Episode Two

Christ is Risen from the dead! Allelulia!

Christ-Emmaus-w2-Disciples-DuccioEpisode Two in the AIC Seasonal Video series, Eastertide: From Resurrection to Ascension, is now available in both video and podcast versions.  Subjects are services for Easter Monday and Easter Tuesday, each commemorating a post-Resurrection appearance of Christ, and the First, Second and Third Sundays after Easter.  There are 16 illustrations from the 11th, 12th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th C., including the tempera on panel work, Jesus on the Road to Emmaus, by Duccio di Buoninsegna in the Byzantine style at the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo (Siena), Siena, Italy, painted between 1308 and 1311 A.D. (Public domain: Yorck Project, 10,000 Masterwerke).

Watch the video.    Listen to the Podcast

Other artists whose work is represented in illustrations are Andrei Rublev (St. Paul; Jesus Christ); Altobello Melone (Road to Emmaus); Rembrandt (Supper at Emmaus); Raphael (Christ Resurrected); and Guadenzio Ferrari (the Resurrection scene, one of 21 images in Scenes in the Life of Christ).  Also included are a 10th C. mosaic and 14th C. bas relief of St. Peter; three stained glass windows from the 19th and 20th C. (Good Shepherd; St. Gregory the Great; Incredulity of St. Thomas); and a splendid 17th C. Russian Orthodox Resurrection icon with five scenes and a tooled silver cover.  For each of the three Sundays after Easter are related hymns from The St. Chrysostom Hymnal.

Episode Three in the series, to be available in mid-April, will include the Fourth and Fifth Sundays after Ascension, Ascension Day and Sunday after Ascension.

Be unrestrained in celebrating Christ’s Resurrection today, the Day That Changed the World, at a church of your choice.  Glory be to God for all things!  Amen!

Easter-MiniThis morning I uploaded Episode One in our newest Seasonal Video series, Eastertide: From Resurrection to Ascension.  The episode includes 17 illustrations from the 13th to the 19th C. (with a photograph from the 21st C.), mostly Resurrection imagery.  Artists include, in order of use, fresco-makers at Constantinople, James Tissot, William Holman Hunt, Giotto, fresco-makers at Milan, Byzantine icon-painters, and Russian Orthodox icon painters, including the celebrated Andrei Rublev, from the 15th to the 18th C.   Regular viewers will have noticed the change in the series graphic from Portrait to Landscape orientation.  This became necessary when I switched production of videos from the version of iMovie on my iPad to the enhanced version on my Mac.  The “Ken Burns effect” program on the Mac, which has many additional features, especially in the area of multi-source soundtracks, is strongly biased toward Landscape imagery.   Viewers will easily see the difference in the way the images scan during the video.  For those especially fond of icons:  the image in the title graphic is one of the best, most carefully drawn representations of the classic “Harrowing of Hades” depiction of Christ, standing on the destroyed gates of Hades and the pit with the “keys to Hades and Death,” lifting Adam (in white) and Eve (in red) from Hades.  The figure with halo at left center (near the tip of Jesus’ right hand) is John the Baptist, observing in his status as the Last Prophet of the Old Testament.  The blue oval is a classic representation of the Glory of the Lord, sheckinah in Hebrew.

Watch the Video.     Listen to the Podcast version

The program, which runs just over 29 minutes, begins with a discussion of the history of the Feast of Feasts from its origins in the early Church both Eastern and Western to 20th C. liturgies in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer.  The program continues with a discussion of the meaning of Easter and its central place in Christian theology, followed by prayer books services for Easter Day, including the changes to Morning Prayer and the two sets of Collect, Epistle and Gospel readings for the day.  Also included is information about seasonal music for Easter from The St. Chrysostom Hymnal and cross-reference to other AIC programs and publications appropriate for Easter Day observances.

Episode Two, focused on Easter Monday and Tuesday and the First, Second and Third Sundays after Easter is almost complete and should be available in video and podcast versions on or before April 2nd.

I’ve posted new links on the Welcome page to Part I and Part II of the Good Friday program as well as the new Eastertide episode for Easter Day.  You can similate the experience of a Good Friday 12 Noon service by opening Part I of In the Cross of Christ I Glory and pausing at the appropriate times between Noon and 3 PM (which obviously requires also opening Part 2 after the completion of the prayers for the Fourth Word.  Part Two resumes the program with Fifth Word for 1:55 P.M.  Again I think the parishioners of Holy Cross REC for providing the voices for the “all saying together” sections and the responses, including the Amens.

I am exploring the movement of all our videos from YouTube to Vimeo, owing to Google’s increasing anti-religious bias.  I also intend to drop my Twitter channel, for the same reason.  Unfortunately, Facebook is important as a vehicle for reaching a broad audience around the world.  I will continue to post church-related links on both my personal and AIC pages at Facebook.   I do not make any personal information posts on my Facebook page and do not use its Messenger program.

As always, thank you for your interest in and support for the AIC’s online ministry.  Your consideration in sharing links and messages with friends, family, business associates and others does help the AIC reach more people, especially those who do not have a local source for traditional Christian teaching and liturgy.

Glory be to God for all things!

In the Cross of Christ I Glory for Good Friday, A.D. 2018

In the Cross
I’m very pleased to announce the uploading yesterday of the AIC Seasonal Video series, In the Cross of Christ I Glory just in time for Good Friday in A.D. 2018.   The program is a video version of the Noon to 3 P.M. Good Friday program I presented at my former parish before my retirement from the pulpit ministry.  Although the actual program was spread across a three-hour timespan, the actual spoken content ran to less than one hour.  To keep the video version within reasonable time limits, the 2018 A.D, video version is presented in two parts.   Part One (32 min) includes the Opening Prayers, Introduction, and the First through the Fourth words.  Part Two (26 min) includes the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh words plus the Closing Remarks.

Watch Part 1.   Listen to the Podcast of Part 1.

Watch Part 2.   Listen to the Podcast of Part 2.

In the Cross-Slide12-revIn the earlier podcast versions I read both the Verse and the Response lines and said the Amen.  In the new video version, I enlisted the help of the congregation at Holy Cross Reformed Episcopal Church in North Chesterfield, VA.  I thank them for their enthusiastic participation.   They and I speak the opening Confession (left), repeated at the start of each section); the opening Verse and Response that includes the Lord’s Prayer; the  internal transition Verse and Response (see below) in each of the seven parts; the closing Verse and Response which includes the Nicene Creed; and, throughout, the Amen for each prayer.    To enhance the viewing experience and make it as much as possible like participation in the original 3-hour program, I have inserted an Intermission slide betweenIn the Cross-Title-Intermission each of the sections, with the instruction to pause the video. Each transition slides notes the starting time of the next section.

The program is built upon the solid foundation laid in 1946 A.D. by the Most Rev. William Moody, Bishop of Lexington, KY, who built his work upon the early-20th C. Good Friday lessons by the eminent theologian, the Very Rev. George Moody, who headed the Episcopal Theological Seminary, Cambridge, MA.  To this wonderful base of spiritual-minded prayers (about half of which were composed by Bp. Moody) and reflections upon the lessons of Good Friday, I added, in the mini-homilies in each section, the interpretations of the great Eastern Church fathers, including St. John Chrysostom (John the Golden Mouth); St. Gregory of Nyssa; and St. Athanasius of Alexandria.

In the Cross-Slide23The video version includes 117 slides, each with an illustration.  There are about 48 different illustrations, ranging from the oldest known representation of the Crucifixion from around the mid-6th C. in Northern Mesopotamia (part of modern Syria), to mosaics, frescoes, watercolors, engravings, and paintings from the 6th through the 18th C. in the Western and Eastern Church artistic traditions; and, from the 19th C., stained glass windows.  One of these windows, a stunningly-beautiful piece at St. Gertrude’s Church, Stockholm, Sweden, is used as the transition slide that marks the start of the Verse and Response for each part of the program.  For the Confession slide, I inserted a Christ Pantokrator mosaic (top left) from the Hagia Sophia at Constantinople commissioned by the Byzantine Emperor Justininian in the 6th C.  The picture credit lines are not mentioned in the narrative, both to save time and to avoid distraction from the meaning of the text and the solemn mood of the presentation.

I hope you will share links to this presentation with friends, family, business associates, and others with an interest in hearing traditional Christian teaching and interpretation.

As always, I thank you for your interest in and support for this Internet-based ministry.  May the Lord bless you in all that you do in His Name.  Amen.  Glory be to God for all things! Amen!

Lent A.D. 2018 – Episode Three

Lent-Slide60Episode Three in the AIC Seasonal Video series, Lent A.D. 2018, was uploaded this morning to our You Tube and Podbean channels.   The focus of the episode is Fifth Sunday in Lent (Passion Sunday), Sixth Sunday in Lent (Palm Sunday), and Holy Week (Monday before Easter through Easter Even).  The text includes historical background plus commentary on all the Collects, Epistle, “For the Epistle” and Gospel readings plus a selection of seasonal music from The St. Chrysostom Hymnal.

I pay special tribute to St. Helen, mother of Emperor Constantine, through whose vigorous efforts the historical and artistic connections between the Holy Land and the Church Universal was restored and many new churches built in Jerusalem and Bethlehem.  It was through her efforts that Christian pilgrimages to the Holy Land began.  The remains of the Churches she built provide the foundations for later churches on the same sites, including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

Watch the Video of Episode Three.    Listen to the Podcast of Episode Three.

In the Cross-Title-Part1An offshoot arising out of the production of Episode Three was an idea that came to mind very, very early in the morning a few weeks ago.  I pondered it carefully and when I got up and went to my Mac I tried to assemble my thoughts on how to implement the idea.   When I retired from the pulpit ministry a few years ago, I had intended to make the 3-hour presentation for Good Friday, In the Cross of Christ I Glory, into an AIC Seasonal Video presentation.  Other projects (podcasts, videos and books)  overwhelmed me and I just never got around to it.   In the Cross of Christ I Glory has been available only in the Podcast Homily versions recorded in 2014-2015 A.D. and presented in eight parts.  The program was built upon the foundation of a 1946 A.D. presentation for Good Friday by Bishop William Moody, which I augmented with comments by the Very Rev. George Hodges from his Good Friday services and lectures from 1904 A.D.  To this base I added material for the mini-homilies accompanying the seven words from the Cross from the homilies of St. John Chrysostom and St. Gregory of Nyssa.

In the Cross of Christ I Glory will be offered as a video in two parts (to keep each video under 30 minutes).  Viewers will see 117 slides illustrated with nearly four dozen icons, frescoes, mosaics, engravings, watercolors, and paintings from the mid-6th C. to the late 19th C.   The program is presented in nine parts, separated by INTERMISSION slides so that viewers can simulate the entire 3-hr (Noon to 3 PM) experience of the original program.  The sound track will include not only my voice narration of the script but also voices for the “all saying together” portions and the responses.   The slides are now complete and the voice recording is scheduled for next week.  There’s still a lot to be done to coordinate the voices and the pictures, but, baring any technical glitches,  I expect to have the work complete and ready to view on or before Palm Sunday.

Episode Seven – The War on Christianity

WOC-Slide96aWith Episode Seven in The War on Christianity I conclude my discussion of the Te Deum Laudamus in its function as a First Line of Defense for any Christian in the world’s on-going battle with Christianity.  The focus of the discussion is Part Two (“Thou art the King of Glory: though “numbered with thy saints in glory everlasting”) and Part Three (“O Lord save thy people” through “let me never be confounded”).  I close the episode with an exploration of the Scriptural origin and usage of “confounded,” especially in the sense of its meaning as not letting oneself get led away from Christian Truth.

Watch Episode Seven.     Listen to Episode Seven.

Readers of the blog should be pleased to learn that I’ve completed all but the recording of Episode Three, the final episode, in Lent A.D. 2018, which is focused on Passion Sunday, Palm Sunday and Holy Week (including Easter Eve).  I hope to get the recording finished next week and, barring any technical glitches, get it uploaded by the end of the week or the first of the following week.

In the Cross-Slide1In other news, I’ve decided to produce a video version of In the Cross of Christ I Glory, the three-hour Good Friday meditations I developed and used in my former parish.  The videos will be produced in however many parts are required to keep each episode to under 35 minutes.  There will be Intermission slides between each of the segments so that viewers can pause the video until the appropriate hour.  There will be no separate podcast versions, since Podcasts of an earlier version are already available from the Podcast Homilies page:

  • Opening Sentences, Prayers and Responses (12:00 Noon)
  • Introduction (12:10 P.M.)
  • First Word (12:30 P.M.)
  • Second Word (12:50 P.M.)
  • Third Word (1:10 P.M.)
  • Fourth Word (1:35 P.M.)
  • Fifth Word (1:55 P.M.)
  • Sixth Word (2:15 P.M.)
  • Seventh Word (2:35 P.M.)
  • Closing Prayers (2:50 P.M.)

The videos will include many illustrations of the events of Good Friday and images associated with the source of the prayers, including stained glass windows, icons, frescoes, mosaics, and engravings from the 6th through the late 19th C.   In this way I can share with viewers much of the catalogue of public domain and royalty-free images I have assembled since launching the AIC effort in 2010 A.D.
