Queen of England addresses COE synod
« on: November 23, 2010, 06:59:53 PM »
The Queen of England addressed the opening session of the Church of England's general synod. The convocation marked the beginning of the synod's five-year term.

From the article:
Quote
Speaking at the synod meeting, she said: "The new synod will have many issues to resolve to ensure that the Church of England remains equipped for the effective pursuit of its mission and ministry.

"Some will, no doubt, involve difficult, even painful, choices.

"But Christian history suggests that times of growth and spiritual vigour have often coincided with periods of challenge and testing."
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

I was talking to an old friend just last night who is a C of E minister. he and a few of our friends are going over to the new ordinate. Sad days indeed for the Anglican communion.
