Good to remember for Lent. Was this intentional, Online Counseling College?

Who are you? Did you friend request me on FB? Are you around to hang out?

I love how God has challenged and blessed me as I began to participate in the Anglican tradition. I love my tradition in both its unity and diversity. I love how the Prayer Book molds my heart and deepens my relationship with God.
But the hardest part of this transition has been my struggle to be seen as legitimate.
Many my evangelical Protestant friends are wary because Anglicanism seems too foreign for them. Sacraments? Robes, liturgy, written prayers? Real Presence? Blah. Too Catholic. Too “Other.” It doesn’t matter how much we love Christ, because I’m not doing it right.
Many of my Catholic friends are not offended by my Anglicanism so much as condescending toward it. I’m the breakaway, the bastard child of Henry VIII, the Catholic hand-me-down. It doesn’t matter how many traditions I share with them, because I’m not part of the same institution so I’m not doing it right.
I remember telling a Catholic dorm-mate of mine several months ago about my baptism, and he responded with a backhanded compliment. He just said “you could have gone all the way and become Catholic, but I’m proud of you anyway.”
Proud of you anyway. In spite of Anglicanism, not because of it.
I don’t have any devoutly Anglican friends, but I just want someone to understand how this feels.
When we have to debate the sacred worth and ministry of all people AGAIN
Hearing one too many sexuality debates
it’s an uphill battle for most of us.
