May God bless the Anglican Church for being honest in dealing with the issues that affect people of God. Safe and inclusive Churches needs our supporr. God Bless you.

Thank God for the Anglican Church in Southern Africa, which offers an example of Inclusive Hospitality for EVERYONE – without discrimination- just like the Lord of The Church.

Surely He has BORNE our griefs and CARRIED our sorrows.Yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten BY God and afflicted. But He was wounded for OUR transgressions. HE was bruised for OUR iniquities. The chastisement for OUR peace was upon Him and by HIS stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray .We have turned every one, to his own way and the Lord laid on HIM the iniquity of us all.
Isaiah 53:4-6
