“What a great time to be alive and to be about the work of the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” said the Rt. Rev. Mark J. Lawrence in his address to the reconvened 219th Diocesan Convention held at St. Paul’s in Summerville, October 15, 2010. “But make no mistake; there are challenges that await us at every turn.”
Lawrence spoke not only of the opportunities currently unfolding to partner in relationships around the globe in fulfilling the vision of “Making Biblical Anglicans for a Global Age,” but about the ongoing challenges the Diocese faces. “We still have a God-given vocation within this worldwide struggle,” he said. “There is no risk-free way forward for us.”
Of special note was the announcement that the Rt. Rev. Michael Nazir Ali, retired Bishop of Rochester in England, and one of the most respected figures in the Anglican Communion, has agreed to be Visiting Bishop in South Carolina for Anglican Communion Relationships.
