“Anyone who touches you touches us”

Chris Sugden  Evangelicals Now  April 2012

During the emergency debate on Nigeria in General Synod on February 8th, Anglicans in Nigeria were listening in on the internet.  After the debate I received a text saying they were in tears at the expression of support, concern and prayer in the Synod debate.  Archbishop Sentamu had said “Anyone who touches you, touches us”.

From April 23-27 two hundred leaders of the Anglican Communion from the Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans will meet in London.

Those attending will fellowship, worship and plan together as they seek to renew the world’s third largest branch of Christianity. Each day, participants will join in morning Bible study. They will also hear inspiring testimony from global Anglican leaders as well as discussion on Anglican mission, theology and other issues of concern.
