Bishop’s Note: June 22, 2018 – GAFCON Update #2

Bishop Menees is traveling for GAFCON, so the Bishop’s Notes during his travel will be updates related to GAFCON.

Plenary Session

Today’s Plenary was led by The Rev Canon David Short, of the Anglican Network in Canada. Rev Short delivered a bible soaked message, reminding us that God’s strategy is a strategy of salvation, and that, “The church is both the goal and the agent of God’s strategy”.

News Article: Family Photo

Anyone who has tried to organise a group photograph at a large family event will have some sympathy for the GAFCON III photography team! it might be thought that they attempted the impossible!

The official conference photograph was taken today in Jerusalem at the iconic location of the Southern Steps of Temple Mount.  Getting 2,000 delegates into a position where each could be seen was certainly a challenge, but the end result was a great success! The temple steps are around half a furlong in length and up to 35 steps deep.

Prayer Requests

Thank you for continuing to lift up events in Jerusalem in prayer. Here are the latest points for your petitions.
Praise God for an incredible time of teaching, fellowship and guidance at Gafcon 2018 so far. Your prayers are a vital part of this movement as together we seek to proclaim Christ faithfully to the nations. 

  • Pray for the final day of the conference Friday as we unveil the Conference Statement.
  • Please pray that the delegates will take what they’ve learned here at Jerusalem 2018 home to their own provinces, dioceses and parishes, to build up their own churches and steadfastly protect and proclaim the truth of the Gospel.
