ANGLICAN PRIMATES GATHERING at CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL: ¨“The difference between our societies and cultures, as well as the speed of cultural change in much of the global north, tempts us to divide as Christians: when the command of scripture, the prayer of Jesus, the tradition of the church and our theological understanding urges unity.

Why did Jesus Live? I can't believe that we've come to the Last Sunday of Epiphany already!  This Epiphany is four Sundays shorter than usual because of the early date of Easter this year, but the Last Sunday of Epiphany is always the same:  The account of ...
