Do you recognize this acrostic - AMIA? Bill Murchison suggests that in the near future you just might. AMIA stands for Anglican Mission in America, it is a new mission launched by Anglicans originating outside of the United States -- seeking the conversion of America. Four bishops were consecrated in Denver, by bishops from Rwanda & Southeast Asia, to oversee the efforts. America has become a mission field worthy of strategic endeavor from non-Western Christians. Murchison suggests that the foreign missionaries may very well get a hearing and a following from Americans fed-up with liberal mainline denominations. Likewise, I think that they'll get a hearing from people fed-up with empty unchristian American values that have become inextricably bound up with American Christianity.
