More about Summer Cloud
Summer Cloud is an American Indian (Tribal member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma) who, though reared in the Southern Baptist faith, realized early on that many of the so-called sacred dogmas, creeds and beliefs he had been taught were at serious variance with the findings of historical researchers, Biblical scholars, Biblical archeologists, physical anthropologists, geologists and more. As you might expect, a boy who openly argued for modifying or throwing out beliefs and claims that had been invalidated was not especially popular among his conservative Protestant peers much less the leaders of the Baptist church he attended. In time his critical thinking mindset propelled him on a quest for an expression of faith that both incorporated and reflected the findings of science and scholarship. In 1980 he became a Roman Catholic but by 2000 had come to the conclusion that some elements in Catholicism are hopelessly at odds with the original teachings and practices of Rabbi Yehoshua/Yeshua/Jesus as well as those of his earliest followers and disciples. Today Summer Cloud characterizes himself as a spiritual eclectic -- which is to say he clings to what is biblically sound in Roman Catholicism (Charismatic) and among Catholic & non-Catholic messianic God-fearers (The focus of this website). In 2015 he became a monk in the Knights of Prayer Monastic Order (Full monk in 2017) as well as a monk in several other religious communities & monastic organizations which are part of the New Monasticism movement.. In 2017 he took the name "Brother Anthony of the Resurrection".
