ANTSIRANANA 080716-1
July 16, 2008

[Diocese of Antsiranana - Indian Ocean] The Lambeth Conference started with a plenary meeting inside the Big Blue Top Tent venue erected specially for this 10 year cycle Anglican Communion meeting of Bishops.
Archbishop Rowan Williams, Primus Inter Pares , in his welcome address did not gloss over the realities of the tension and strain which pull and push us in different directions. He acknowledged that " WE ARE A WOUNDED BODY " ........
Yet he made us all the Bishops of our faithful Anglican Communion welcome with enthusiasm, hope and confidence for our task of leading the work of mission in our Church.
He mentions the words of Jesus ( Jn 16:35 ) .........
IT IS IN UNION WITH HIM THAT WE SHALL FIND PEACE....
and that peace will be what makes the difference in our communion life as a Church.
