Communion in Crisis: A new Reformation or a new Dark Age?

Jun 22, 2019 by

By the Rev. Canon J. Philip Ashey, President & Chief Executive Officer of AAC.
Delivered during the Anglican Church in North America’s Provincial Assembly, June 18, 2019. View Canon Ashey’s slide show here.
We are on the cusp of a once-every-500-year Reformation of Christianity! This time the presenting issues are around the meaning of human identity and “human flourishing.” At the same time, we are in a time of unprecedented persecution and martyrdom of Christians. Within our own global communion of Anglican churches we are in a “Kairos” moment—literally a “crisis” opportunity to choose between western secularism, cultural Marxism, radical Islam and religious pluralism (on the one hand), and the Biblical vision of human flourishing under the Gospel of Jesus Christ on the other. In this “big picture” breakout session we will address:
– Where are Biblically faithful, missional Anglicans flourishing today—and why?
– What can we learn from them?
– What “deficits” in our own Anglican family must we address to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission to make disciples of all nations?
– How can the Church structure itself more effectively at all levels for the sake of making disciples?
Will global Anglicans surrender to a new Dark Age fueled by western secularism? Or will we preach the Gospel, whatever the cost, and uphold the Biblical vision of human flourishing under the Lordship of Jesus Christ? Come join us as we discern together the way forward!
