Simply Emerging

We want to be a congregation of individual congregations. We would like to claim apostolic “succession”, meaning that we derive authority from a direct line consecrated by the original apostles. The continuity of our doctrinal learning and education claims adherence to the Order of St. Benedict, or the Benedictine monks as a congregation of individual congregations.
We would also like to graft into the olive tree a wild branch of the Orthodox Russian church. We would express the proper functions and sacramental status of a bishop. We are a group of semi-wandering bishops, similar to the episcopi vagantes.

In actuality, we are in charge of caring for lost lambs in distant realms, where it is seen that the sheep-fold contains much larger, neighboring sheepfolds not of this pasture. (John 10:16)
