In November Michael Cumbie will be coming to our parish (St Vincent De Paul in Cape Girardeau MO :dancing: ) to do a parish mission. I have not heard a lot about him. What I have read and heard is good. :clapping: I was just wondering if anyone out there has anymore info or experience with the guy. Please let me know.
Former validly ordained Charismatic Episcopal Church Priest, so yes he does have the powers and sacramental character of a priest. He was a southern baptist, became a charismatic due to an experience with friends. Very soon after his baptism in the Spirit, he went to a Catholic Church, to pray, he was very moved to the point of tears. Became a Pastor but whenever he was out of town he would go to a Catholic Church to pray, going so far as to rub the toe of a Saint’s statue, he didn’t know what Saint, just they must have been great to have a statue. Was confronted at a confrence that the Protestants should return to Liturgical worship and sacramental theology. The man who confronted him along with him and a few others joined forces to start a new denomination. The charismatic episcopal church. They had orders via the Old Catholic Line (surprisingly, they were quite orthodox in teaching). Later on they had their lines strengthened by the Apostolic Church of Brazil. Michael Cumbie however knew he had to turn Catholic, but had to set aside his ministry as a Priest.
