There are of course religious orders in the Anglican Church anglicansonline.org/resources/orders.html and Orthodox Churches as well as a few Luttheran orders BUT for those of you that didn’t know (as I didn’t) there is also a relgious order in the
United Church of Christ called the Order of Corpus Christi (orderofcorpuschristi.org/ ) and a United Methodist religious order called the Order of St. Luke (not to be confused with the Order of Saint Luke the Physcian) saint-luke.org/who/index.html . The order of Saint Luke (UMC) according to their web site is a religious order dedicated to liturgical renewal and scholarship and is ecumenical (ie men and women from other faith groups may become members of the order).
I think it is rather neat. I remember reading on the Anglican Brotherhood of Saint Gregory web site that they had been invited to attend Mass at a Roman Catholic order’s monestary (of course they could not receive communion).
Ahhhh…the sheer variety of religious life. Okay…I have not found a Southern Baptist Religious order yet.
