Lord Carey Encourages 'Be Faithful' Gathering

Lord Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury (1991-2002), has sent this letter to Anglicans who have gathered in London to Be Faithful.

Dear brothers and sisters,

Be assured of my prayers as you gather at Westminster Central Hall today. My visits to different parts of the world reveal the grievous hurts to our Body caused by the lamentable actions of TEC in 2003. In such a situation your witness, your courage and your commitment to the gospel are grounds for hope.

You are already facing suspicion and hostility from various quarters because of the launch of FCA in England. Nevertheless, attempt to build the strongest bonds of communion with the rest of the Anglican family.

Remain steadfast in truth, and compassionate in unity. And be prepared to go the extra mile for others.

With warmest greetings in Christ
George Carey
