WELCOME!

Thanks for visiting the Anglican Church of the Great Shepherd’s website. We do hope that you will take the time to check out all the various pages of our website so you can get an understanding of who we are. We are a member parish of the Anglican Church in North America (www.anglicanchurch.net). Our mission statement is: “Responding to God’s love, we seek to imitate Jesus by living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit in order to bring the love of Christ to our world by word and deed, so that all may come to love and obey Him for the glory of God.” We are actively involved with New Name, a local anti-trafficking Ministry and CareNet of Dupage. If you have any questions about the Anglican Church of the Great Shepherd please feel free to telephone us at: 630-681-0776 or email us at: office@greatshepherd.org.

THE YEAR OF GRACE

Many Christian denominations and even independent churches will establish “The Year of…”, that is, they declare the new year will have a special emphasis that will permeate all that transpires in and through them.  Fr. George is calling Great Shepherd to embrace 2016 as “The Year of Grace”.  By this he means he would like us to have grace permeate all that we do, say, think, and even contemplate, during this New Year. He wants grace to be our litmus test for actions and responses, and not just corporately, but in our individual lives as well.  He suggests that we be willing to receive grace.  As hard as it may seem, some Christians have difficulty receiving grace, both from God and others.  We need to be able to receive grace in order to really give it. During the next 12 months, he will be sharing periodic emails regarding grace, regarding our “Year of Grace”. He would like to suggest that we all read (or re-read) Philip Yancey’s book, What’s So Amazing About Grace? This book can be secured at most Christian bookstores, or through Amazon.
