Sunday on the Space Coast

Its been a good day to be hanging out on the Space Coast. Temperatures and dewpoints have been pretty much straight out of the weather textbook for Central Florida.

The morning kicked off with a visit to Prince of Peace Anglican Church (PoP) in Viera, a community tat sits about ten miles north of Melbourne that rests between I-95 and the Indian River. This parish's primary affiliation lies with the Anglican Mission in America, or AMIA. PoP apparently was born out of St. John's Melbourne and has existed as a separate entity. In this time, PoP has grown into a healthy, thriving body that stands on the uncompromising truth of God's Word, while throwing their doors and their arms wide open in the spirit and love of the Christ. Far from being "Angry-cans", this family of saints has a grip on what it means to live out their faith in our new millennium.

PoP is shepherded by Father Gary Echols and three capable Deacons. Additionally, the parish has an active lay leadership core.

I highly recommend this Parish to anyone visiting or relocating to the Brevard/Melbourne area as an outstanding community in which to live out your faith.
