A stranger at home (St Stephen's, Clifton Forge)
I almost didn't make it; certainly it felt like things were conspiring against this Wandering Anglican. Despite an early departure from the conference hotel a half-hour away, a combination of things including inaccurate maps and being misled by road signs led to my finding St. Stephen's, Clifton Forge VA with bare minutes to spare. (Their sign helped,) Maybe it was the relief, but I've never felt so much at home visiting another Anglican church - it seemed to reaffirm the communion between our respective jurisdictions (ACC and APCK). 1928 BCP, 1940 Hymnal (I have never seen a non-harmony version before) and solid teaching from the pulpit - priceless.
