Eighth Diocesan Synod in Karonga...

Joy. What comes to your mind when you hear this simple word? What does this beautiful word make us ponder about ourselves? Our parishes? We have gathered here in Karonga for the first time as a Diocese to hold our eighth Diocesan Synod. This is a special time when we reflect on how we have done in our mission in the past years as we look forward to the next two years. Click here to read the Bishops' Charge given during the 2015 Diocesan Synod.

Over the past days Our Primates have been meeting in Canterbury for the mission of the Communion. Below is the out come.

The full text is as follows:

1. We gathered as Anglican Primates to pray and consider how we may preserve our unity in Christ given the ongoing deep differences that exist among us concerning our understanding of marriage.

2. Recent developments in The Episcopal Church with respect to a change in their Canon on marriage represent a fundamental departure from the faith and teaching held by the majority of our Provinces on the doctrine of marriage. Possible developments in other Provinces could further exacerbate this situation.

3. All of us acknowledge that these developments have caused further deep pain throughout our Communion.

4. The traditional doctrine of the church in view of the teaching of Scripture, upholds marriage as between a man and a woman in faithful, lifelong union. The majority of those gathered reaffirm this teaching.

5. In keeping with the consistent position of previous Primates’ meetings such unilateral actions on a matter of doctrine without Catholic unity is considered by many of us as a departure from the mutual accountability and interdependence implied through being in relationship with each other in the Anglican Communion.

6. Such actions further impair our communion and create a deeper mistrust between us. This results in significant distance between us and places huge strains on the functioning of the Instruments of Communion and the ways in which we express our historic and ongoing relationships.

7. It is our unanimous desire to walk together. However given the seriousness of these matters we formally acknowledge this distance by requiring that for a period of three years The Episcopal Church no longer represent us on ecumenical and interfaith bodies, should not be appointed or elected to an internal standing committee and that while participating in the internal bodies of the Anglican Communion, they will not take part in decision making on any issues pertaining to doctrine or polity.

8. We have asked the Archbishop of Canterbury to appoint a Task Group to maintain conversation among ourselves with the intention of restoration of relationship, the rebuilding of mutual trust, healing the legacy of hurt, recognising the extent of our commonality and exploring our deep differences, ensuring they are held between us in the love and grace of Christ.

A wonderful morning on the Island where I represented the family of the Archdeacon Glossop in receiving the Tayamika Award. It is the first of its kind to be given out by the citizen of Likoma represented by the Tayamika. This is now dedicated to St. Mark's Parish.

The Archdeacon Glossop is one of the outstanding missionary who faithfully ministered on the Island for many years. He was a Priest in Charge of St. Mark, Principal of the St. Augustine Theological College, Registrative Council Member representing African Interest. As an Archdeacon he was the first judge of the Island as the Archdeacons have their own court to institute justice.

We thank the organizers for remembering the Archdeacon Glossop. Although he passed on some years ago he will still continue to speak.

19/11/15. It's always a blessing to be back in Chintheche Parish. This is the place where God found me to be his servant. I was in this Parish serving as a Priest before the calling into the Episcopal ministry. We had a wonderful confirmation service over an evening song. This is soon after coming back from Likoma yesterday. Thanks be to God for the strength to do all this. Thanks to all in Chintheche Parish for the blessed day we had together.
