About A Glorious Revolution

Welcome here!

A Glorious Revolution is the web log of Iain Boyd, Senior Pastor of Trinity Church in Myrtle Beach.  The purpose of this blog is to assert a Gospel Centered view not only of the Christian life but also of Anglicanism.  The Anglican Church was started when brave men and women were convicted of the truth of the Gospel and called for reform in their churches.  Historically, our churches foundational commitment to the Gospel has ebbed and flowed, but it is our opinion that Anglicanism stands or falls on the pure Gospel of Jesus.  The current divides in Anglicanism seem to be over the cultural tides of conservativism and liberalism.  The Gospel is a third way that transcends these categories.  Jesus is more radical than the liberals and more moral than the conservatives.  So, we seek to call the Anglican church back to a Gospel centered life that transforms the world starting in Myrtle Beach.  In this blog you’ll see frequent posts from reformers both within Anglicanism and without, modern and ancient, commentary on news in the worldwide Anglican Communion, as well as my own musings on film, culture, politics, religion, music and much more.  I am happy to report that my good friend, Sami Al Taher will continue to post  material here that has stirred his heart to a more radical commitment to Jesus and His Gospel.  We will also continue to post material pertinent to Trinity Church under the categories tab “Trinity Tidings.”

    Hey Rob+, I heard you preach about a year ago while visiting my in-laws out that way. Appreciated your sermon that day and love the blog – very helpful. I also serve as a “young” Rector (AMiA) and keep a blog at http://www.bullstreetblog.com as well as a parish blog at blog.resurrectionwoodstock.org. Next time we are out that way I’d love to see if you have time to get some coffee. We will probably be visiting again in the spring. Love to hear your thoughts on improving my blog if you have time. Advent Blessings, Greg+

    “…28 year old senior pastor…”

    So… how old is the junior pastor?

  10. doulos tou Theou says:


    27 i think

    Senior in context here just means head Pastor.

    Although I enjoy reading Trinity-supported blogs, I had not registered until today. Thank you for your work; it hasn’t gone unnoticed or unappreciated.
