    Are you high or low Anglican?

    There is a nearby Episcopalian parish (just celebrated its 325th anniversary) which recently added icons to its side walls (the priest has come to our services a couple times while on sabbatical).

    High Anglican. We have the Stations of the Cross on our side walls and glass windows but that's about all she wrote...

    Revelation 2:14-16
    “‘Nevertheless, I have a few things against you, that you have there those adhering to the teaching of Baʹlaam, who taught Baʹlak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit sexual immorality.
    15 In the same way, you also have those adhering to the teaching of the sect of Nicolaus.
    16 So repent. If you do not, I am coming to you quickly, and I will war against them with the long sword of my mouth.

    Not the same person. St. Nicholas lived in the 3rd/4th century, long after Revelation was written.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom
