GAFCON Primates Write in Support of Bishop Lawrence

Yet another indication that The Episcopal Church’s attack on the Diocese of South Carolina and on Bishop Lawrence is isolating TEC far more than the Diocese and its bishop comes with this letter from the GAFCON Primates:

Our Dear Brother:

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

During our meeting last week in Dar es Salaam we took time to pray for you and the clergy and people of the Diocese of South Carolina. We are encouraged by your faithfulness to the Bible and rejoice in your clear stand for the Gospel.

We are grieved, however, by the attitude and actions of the leadership of The Episcopal Church and their efforts to demand canonical obedience through unjust means to their ungodly agenda. As we have made clear in the Jerusalem Declaration we reject their authority and call on them to repent and return to the Lord.

Please know that we continue to recognize you as a faithful Anglican bishop and the Diocese of South Carolina as part of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

We stand with you in the battle and are confident that this time of trial will result in great blessing. Please do greet your people on our behalf and assure them of our love and prayers.

On behalf the FCA Primates Council

In Christ’s love and service,

The Most Reverend Eliud Wabukala
