Forward in Faith update

The month ahead

As members and supporters of Forward in Faith await the proceedings of this month’s General Synod, it is perhaps worthwhile to remind ourselves that life goes on.

Christian pilgrimage

As this issue of New Directions is delivered, a number of young – and no so young! – men will be setting forth on the next stage of their Christian pilgrimage, as they are ordained to the diaconate or to the priesthood.

Courageous act

How long each of them will be able to minister in this Church of England none of us can know. But it is right that, as we pray for them, we should also salute their courage. Offering oneself for the sacred ministry in a Church which seems to value our tradition so little is indeed a courageous act. ND
