The Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) is a conference of orthodox Anglican bishops and leaders. First held in 2008 in Jerusalem, the conference launched the global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans and marked a turning point in the Anglican Communion.
Last month our rector was asked to write a column on the necessity of expository preaching. This week, GAFCON added a meme.
“Being an Anglican expository preacher is hard in a time of spiritual declension like our own. It is because many of us unconsciously believe that a well-studied understanding of our cultural context, rather than the Bible, is the key to preaching with power. But the power is in the Word.” –Rev. Canon Dr. Henry P. Jansma
