What Anglicanism is Not – by Tyler Kerley

For me, it is much easier to understand what Anglicanism is by first understanding what it is not. I am convinced of this helpful principle because my own personal journey into Anglicanism is an illustration of it. Catholic and Protestant: Neither, but Both Let’s be honest, most people think one of two things—perhaps even both!— whenever they hear “Anglicanism”: How [...]
