Confirmation

I am posting pictures of our confirmation service last month. We skyped in Fr. Black's son and family from Phoenix (who love the CEC). It is so amazing what you can do with so little. Yesterday in the daily reading (Acts) we read the wonderful story of Paul starting a relationship (life long) and a church (later very powerful one) on a river bank where women gathered (I'm sure to do their families laundry).
 
Fr. Black turns his living room (actually quite on the smaller size compared to western American ranch homes) into an amazing "Sacred space". He has been in rented places but finds he and the people are real comfortable (more like cozy) there. Eventually, God willing, he will have to move on but for now I am the first to admit, it is glorious.

THE MOST REV'D JOHN WILLIAM HOLLOWAY

THE MOST REV'D JOHN WILLIAM HOLLOWAY
WITH THE LORD - FEBRUARY 22, 2014
 
bpholloway The Most Rev’d John William Holloway, B. A., M.Div., D. D., Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of the Mid-South, passed away early in the morning on Saturday, February 22, 2014 in Griffin, Georgia. He was 59 years old.

Bishop Holloway, a graduate of Valdosta State University and the Candler School of Theology at Emory University, 
served as a United Methodist minister and, later, as an independent charismatic minister prior to entering the priesthood in the ICCEC. He was the founding pastor of St. Michael and All Angels Charismatic Episcopal Church which eventually acquired the former Methodist Church building in downtown Thomaston, GA.
 
He served as a number of years as the Canon Missioner for Georgia and, in 1997, was consecrated as a bishop. He first served the Missionary District of Georgia which, under his leadership, became the Diocese of Georgia. Later, Tennessee was added to form the Diocese of the Mid-South. Holloway traveled to several countries in Africa where he was beloved by the church there. His ministry journeys also took him to the Caribbean, Mexico, the Philippines, and to other locations.
 
In 2007, at the age of 53, Bishop Holloway suffered a debilitating stroke which ended his public ministry but not his ministry of intercession, although, for the most part, he was confined to his bedroom since his illness. During his tenure, over a dozen churches were founded and over three dozen men ordained to the ministry in Georgia and Tennessee. Many times that number were confirmed and ordained during ministry overseas.
