Collapse of discipline
Over 1,100 delegates gathered for that first conference, including over 200 bishops, many of whom came to Jerusalem rather than attend the 2008 Lambeth Conference alongside those bishops of the Episcopal Church of the United States (TEC) who had set aside the biblical teaching on sexuality affirmed by the1998 Lambeth Conference by assenting to the consecration of a man in an active homosexual relationship as a bishop.Read more
Central to the task facing him, as Archbishop Idowu-Fearon sees it, is to be an ambassador, calling for reconciliation. Christians and Muslims in Nigeria hate each other, and so do Anglicans from Africa and the West. The solution is to promote reconciliation by getting people to agree to reject confrontation, learn about the 'other', respect differences, and commit to peace.Read more
Dean Samy was approached following discussions involving Archbishop Justin, Archbishop Mouneer, and the secretary general of the Anglican Communion, Dr Josiah Idowu-Fearon. Archbishop Mouneer made it clear that the Dean had decided not to take up the offer because of his forthcoming appointment as the area Bishop of North Africa.
Archbishop Mouneer went further, saying that he was "troubled and disappointed" by the article written by Conger, saying that it "was not accurate."Read more
Most members of the church could be seen standing up and cheering when the Trumps arrived and took their seats.
A fellow churchgoer snapped a photo of the soon-to-be first couple once they were sitting inside in a church pew as the midnight service got underway.
Trump's appearance at church comes as he bemoaned the increased use of the term 'Happy Holidays' in place of 'Merry Christmas' as a sign that Christianity is under attack.Read more

"Victoria Police would like to reassure the community that the threat has been contained and there is no on-going threat," the spokesman said. "Victoria has well tested, cooperative, counter terrorism and emergency management plans in place and constantly monitor and assess our preparedness to respond to a range of emergencies."Read more
Of course, the majority of Christians have no interest in chewing out minimum-wage baristas. We don't mind when neighbors, coworkers, or grocery store clerks wish us "happy holidays." But we do want to lovingly proclaim the reason behind the season. That's why it's so strange that this year, many churches--particularly megachurches--are cancelling services on the Lord's Day because it coincides with Christmas.Read more
The DA's office and a civil attorney for three alleged victims said the criminal proceedings are the first they know of to be initiated against White, who lives in Bedford, Penn.
A grand jury indicted White last month on five counts of assault and battery. He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Suffolk Superior Court.Read more
The Archbishop of Wales, Dr Barry Morgan, welcomed the move and said: "This film will not be easy watching for church members as it reminds us how people among us have been ostracised and mistreated because of their sexuality.
"By sharing the personal stories of those who have suffered and been hurt I hope this powerful film will bring home to all the scale of the damage done and ultimately help change attitudes within the church."Read more
So we must be ready and prepared, understanding the times, just as the Apostle Paul urges the Christians in Rome when he writes: 'the hour has come for you to wake out of sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed' (Romans 13:11).Read more
