Lambeth Woes: Bigger barns, Higher Walls
The area continue going through a health building something. I'd rather differences and it takes us back into our Anglican communion and the pressure of our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters.
We will not clean be forgiven. This is another gathering.
Wise words from the Archbishop of Canterbury and his first keynote address to the conference on Friday evening.
And a half years.
Including our ownership from algae growing on Asia.
Spouses are some advices which might seem a little old-fashioned. But in many parts of the communion, especially for example, and the fastest Indian, this conference was the first when there are a handful of pushers who have same-sex spouses, those were not invited get Grace to look beyond their personal circumstances and the hope of bringing about change to our church.
The most conservative provinces about communion Nigeria when they did not attend at all. They have chosen not to attend.
Of course, citing the issue of same-sex marriage but also in their list of these did the conference is going to be focusing on peripheral is about the environment.
and the difficulties experienced by disadvantaged communities, somehow these We're not on TV interviewer. United Nations. You can imagine how to be meeting and listening to people from places.
You have never heard of made many men alone being too.
And a - study with a person, from South Carolina, or Saskatoon.
What a rich conversation, they would have.
Now a couple of days made of the conference, some material was released and unbeknownst to ceiling lie to everyone.
There was a proposal and but all the communion And that cause was taken out. And, and in many, provinces continue to affirm that same-gender marriages, Landing the resolution was after careful theological reflection and improve success of reception and missions. We remain committed to listening to the maximum possible just fine.
Something disagreement on these issues.
So that was a statement which accurately describes the state of and people generally were very happy then.
Affecting our world.
Also on Friday a group who I called the global South has declared today. They will not receive communion alongside game.
Which of course is utterly.
To think that anyone but especially with. What do you say? It's just so disgraceful.
visual way higher, think of it, as a place of Pilgrimage by mid-century think of all those perceptions and communion and the mother Church of our communion. But now everyone's going to be watching to see who and who stays in this?
Mm-hmm. If we changed our invitation to communion to say, we judged to be right with, God may come. And we say, well because we cannot judge our sister around rather indicate who is worthy so that we can we come knowing we are not worthy.
On a Blog from one of the global South prices and I picked up just falling onto us and they the right of the saying that it. Absolutely. But she does have the right to decide who to exclude from communion and it is absolutely their right to do. So and that the writer criticized the increase and thank you for being. So out which really tells us what this debate is really about. It's about power and who gets to decide who is it.
and if it was out, we trade to watch the service, which will be later tonight for me to see what the preachers going to do was to bring a Vanity Vanity. All is never see those viewing honest foods from the right of Ecclesiastes.
It is not everything will be. All right, because God loves you.
Some similar features appear in an hour.
Community of workers who have delivered the hearts.
figuring release a bigger churches with higher and only little Same kind of phrase you would use for a loan being from the bank, your life is being asked for back.
Used to you then is your big about going to church.
The Archbishop of Canterbury also, spoke on Friday, about the dangers of the rich control the technology to the exclusion of for, he said a world of privilege to exist in a world of want and suffering and if not, we're of the kingdom of God.
Think about the parable and the call takes all the rich controlling the technology of the world and in particular and the realm of climate change. Those we've stored up in terms of energy and the commonly used rather than thinking about the needs of the planet.
Think of the stories of almost muffled cold provide interesting lands. Being commissioned to help demand for energy rather than are wearing the device.
think about the Archbishop of Canterbury was saying, Jesus.
We should be rich toward God.
What would it look like if we were Rich of the ratings from the last few Sundays will find that we've been given us some Clues?
three, Sundays ago, we had the reading of the Good Samaritan about compassion and care for our neighbor especially on they do some days ago we had Mary and Martha distracted by many things Siri has chosen to listen And then last Sunday, Jesus taught his disciples to pray. And so it is lined up. These producers to give us some Clues when we get to this challenging parable about riches.
Something, which involves listening to God and each other prayer position.
Those are things that struck for us treatment. If the landowner about those things, he might not have built a bigger bar but instead she listen to the prophets prayed about his actions instead of just talking to him.
And no finished his life worrying about his position.
Our beautiful altar props that we have rededicated today. It is a Trisha But it represents people who nearly 100 years ago were Rich towards God thankful for a spiritual healing.
And I listened to God, and to each other, and they prayed.
So as We Gather today for the Eucharist we come with Humanity knowing that each person is loved by God and that no one is excluded. We can hang out and study to build the walls and think about and not deliver each other.
We come valuing the human dignity of every child of God.
And we call on our show and the viciousness of the communion to be true to be calling to me.
and not the need of their churches, to Do not leave us feeling ashamed to call ourselves.
They might like to hear the words to heed the words of the psalm sit down.
We see that the wise also died as well as they leave Russia life and leave their wealth to others.
The entire room is their own forever. Their Dwelling Place from age to age the once they understand after their own names, one who is Rich but without is like the least.
