New religious communities in Brazil
Dear Rev Campos,
Let me begin by apologising for the delay in responding to your message.
We are happy to hear of your work for the Lord and your interest in our community.
The community of St. Anselm is an ecumenical, international community of young people and we greatly value our links with churches both within the Anglican family and without.
We would wish to encourage you in your endeavour to begin a community. We have found great encouragement in our coming together as brothers and sisters in Christ to pray, study and serve. I attach for your information the rule of life of our community which may be of interest.
My only advice would be that each community must begin from the our response to God, our praise in recognition that He is our first principle and foundation. I am sure that as you come together seeking God you will be led to understand what sort of community God is calling you to be.
Do keep us updated
Yours in Christ
