Bishops' Training Day: Kinship & Compassion Pt II
Kinship and Compassion: Pt II
All clergy in active ministry are invited to attend this training day to explore our connection to community. Bishop Philip will be developing his work on kinship and compassion with a focus on Mother Theresa's words: "the problem in the world is that we have forgotten that we belong to each other." This will evolve into an update and discussion around the Report from the Primates' Working Group concerning Motion 29.
TIME: Commencing Friday evening October 13 and concluding Sunday afternoon October 15
MEETING: Holy Trinity, Stratford (Corner of Regan St and Juliet St)
Synods in the Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia were the first in the Anglican world to enable Bishops to call the House of Clergy and representatives of the House of Laity together to assist them in the governance of the Church. Bishop Selwyn, the architect of the Constitution of the Church in these islands, was determined that Bishops should not have to govern alone. As he famously said; “It remains then to define by some simple principle the terms of our co-operation. They are simply these; that neither will I act without you, nor can you act without me”.
Synod 2017 documents will be made available when possible and no later than 15th September 2017..
