Anglican Gazette Episode 33 - The Post-Convention Wrap Up


In today’s episode of the Anglican Gazette, we talk about the latest news in the community. First in the list is Bishop Michael Curry’s state after his cancer surgery. Next is the new bishops that were recently consecrated for new dioceses, The Pope’s change in the Catholic Church’s Position on Death Penalty, the bad exegesis of Pastor Robert Jeffress, and
