Reverse African Mission Trip
African clergy told to re-evangelise ‘ailing’ Anglican church
The archbishop of Uganda has urged hundreds of African bishops to shake off their fears, shame and superficial dependency and re-evangelise the “ailing” churches of the west.
In a rallying cry to the biggest constituency of the Anglican Communion, Henry Orombi said yesterday was time for Africans to “rise up and bring fresh life in the ailing global Anglicanism“.
His call came on the day that US Episcopalians published a guide on liturgical and ceremonial resources for clergy and same-sex couples.
Orombi was addressing 400 bishops who are in Entebbe, Uganda, this week for the second meeting of the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa. He told them the “potentials” attending the conference must be free to go to Europe and the US and revive the “Mother Church desperate for the gospel”.
4 Important Questions: 1) How many car washes will these bishops have to do in order to make the trip? 2)What does this say about the state of American Christianity? 3)At what point do we finally we give the African church the voice she deserves in the church? 4)Does Rowan Williams have the largest eyebrows in history?
