Season 3 of Showtime’s “The Tudors” ends October 27. The 4th season begins in 2010 in order to end the saga of Henry VIII. One of the characters in the story is Thomas Cranmer, archbishop of Canterbury. He showed up on the scene in season 2 but has not yet arrived in season 3. This has fans asking, “Where is Thomas Cranmer?

I love that people are asking for more Cranmer. I wish more Christians were asking for more of him. Here is why. In one of his prayers, Cranmer wrote: “we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves.” He also gave the best definitions of “faith” ever: “nothing else but assured hope and confidence in Christ’s mercy.”

    Hi Justin —

    It may be of interest that (Jady Koch's quasi-adviser) Ashley Null is speaking on Thomas Cranmer in NYC on Tuesday evening, Oct 27th.

    The enlightened reader may look at the ministry conference page at http://www.christchurchnyc.com for info and directions.

    If anyone has economic troubles and wishes to attend, then they can be in touch with me about that so we can make a way for them to be there.

    I hope such info is okay for a blog post…
