Forward in Faith, North America has just released a letter about their experience at GAFCON. One of the signatories of the letter? Father Warren Tanghe, my old rector from Church of Our Saviour in Atlanta! Here’s an excerpt:
GAFCON’s final statement endorsed FiF NA’s vision for a new province in North America, and identified the CCP as the vehicle for carrying it out. The GAFCON movement recognizes the ordination of women as one of the issues which divides it, as it does the CCP, and is committed to seek the mind of Christ together on these issues.
It took many years’ prayer and hard work – and not least your prayers and FiF NA’s efforts on your behalf, even at a time when others dismissed our vision – to get to this point. It will take a great deal of effort, both in the international GAFCON movement and in North America’s emerging province, to carry out what has been begun over this last week in Jerusalem.
We members of the FiF NA deputation wish to express our thanks to each of you whose generosity has made it possible for each of us to be here, and to play what we believe to be a significant role in this turning-point of the Anglican realignment.
Keep kicking ass for the Lord, Father Tanghe! 🙂
