The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams gave the sermon at today's beautiful opening eucharist for the ACC-15 meeting at Auckland's Holy Trinity Cathedral.
Speaking on the Gospel reading, John 15:17-27, he said we all needed to remember that while the world around us is a place where love is conditional, Jesus punctures that view of love." He said that the challenge for the Church is rethinking love & belonging. "We are to create more belonging with those who don't belong..." he said. "The church is whatever in us says 'yes' to the reckless love of God, that reaches out in mission."
