Message from our national chair
Meetings aren’t always exciting, but the National Board of the Anglican Communion Alliance met November 20 to 22 – and it was exciting!
We believe we’re in a time of remarkable opportunity at ACA. We’re aware of many folk of biblical principle, who desire to remain in the Anglican Church of Canada, even while they disagree with decisions made by their dioceses and bishops. We feel called to bear witness, to support one another, and to dedicate ourselves to Mission and Evangelism.
Bishops phone ACA regularly, asking for advice. This comes from bishops on all sides of today’s issues. A group of clergy asked me to come and speak with them as they seek to live faithfully and creatively with a false turn taken by their bishop.
As a Board, the unprecedented opportunity of the present, has spurred us to seek the appointment of a National Director of the Anglican Communion Alliance. This person will help us unite groups across the country, and raise up new ones. He or she will travel the country, encouraging the many faithful Anglicans who struggle to feel at home in their church.
So, the enclosed brochure sets our goals:
I. A National Director: $20,000 per year
II. Our always effective presence at General Synod, July 2013: $25,000
III. Two representatives to the GAFCON Conference in October 2013: $4,000
(GAFCON is eager to support those presenting a conservative witness within their churches)
May we count on you to give generously? We believe God is calling us to be a Servant Community, bringing hope and vitality to those eager to uphold the faith once delivered to the saints!
Blessings and a Joyous Advent,
The Rev. Canon Murray Henderson
