The Anglican Communion: An African Perspective

From here:

The message I would bring from Africa is first one of deep gratitude to God and to those who in the name of Christ risked everything to bring us the gospel.

Secondly, it is passionate plea: as those brothers and sisters gave their very lives for the gospel, let us grasp their vision and run with it, not being held back by debates and struggles, but pressing on in mission, knowing that we too may be faced with persecution, suffering, heartbreak, pain and misunderstanding, but knowing above all that the Lord who goes before his people has never failed us and will never leave us or forsake us. The mission is his – and the Church is his too. May we in the Anglican Communion be found faithful for the glory of God and for the sake of the generations yet to come.
