Tribute to the Revd Dr John Stott from the Archbishop of Armagh and the Archbishop of Dublin
From The Most Revd Alan Harper, OBE, Archbishop of Armagh and
The Most Revd Dr Michael Jackson, Archbishop of Dublin
On the news of the death of the Revd Dr John Stott, Rector Emeritus of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London, we wish to pay tribute to him, and to acknowledge his great contribution over many years to the life of the Anglican Communion – indeed the whole Church – across the world.
Dr Stott spoke in Ireland on a number of occasions, particularly through his work with Langham Partnership International. His talks, his witness in ordained ministry for over sixty years, and, perhaps most significantly, his numerous publications were highly influential to the formation of many clergy and made a notable and valued impact on the lives and faith of lay people alike. Gracious to all who knew him, his loss will be felt widely while his writings will remain a fitting legacy to his life of Christian service.
