As I write this edition of “Views” I have just learned of the statement from the meeting of the Primates about the continuing relationship between the Anglican Communion and The Episcopal Church. You can read the documenthere . Click here to read some of our Presiding Bishop’s comments during the meeting to the Primates. Finally, here is a statement just released to us by our Presiding Bishop.
Like Presiding Bishop Curry, I remain committed to the mission of the church as outlined in our Book of Common Prayer. “The mission of the Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.” Unity is our hope. So too is this promise, “to strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.”
As I read the news from England, I recalled a sermon by The Reverend Matt Currin that someone sent me last summer. I pass it on to you here. From beyond the grave, his words ring true. Amen.
