Three new videos from the Edinburgh 2010 world missionary conference are available at http://www.episcopalchurch.org/81231_ENG_HTM.htm.
Anglicans attending the World Missionary Conference in Edinburgh say it is set to be a crucial moment for global Christianity.
The Rt Revd Mark McDonald, Canada’s first National Indigenous Bishop, said the conference was giving people a real sense of the trajectory of God’s future for the church. “I expect a Christian identity to emerge out of this conference that will transcend what we’ve been before. This is really about building the relationships that will carry the worldwide church to a new level.”
The Ven. Vincentia Kgabe, a rector of a parish and also an Archdeacon in the Diocese of Johannesburg, said as Anglicans the delegation members had brought a lot to the conference.
“We [Anglicans] have a relationship with so many other churches. We are a church that is so diverse, so open, so exciting, so we bring our diversity here, we bring our excitement, we bring the hopes of what we believe God is doing and what God will continue to do in the church.”
Sunday is the last day of the conference after which the delegates will head to London to visit the staff at the Anglican Communion Office and Lambeth Palace.
On the morning of Sunday 6th June, BBC Radio 4's flagship religious programme, Sunday Worship, will reflect Edinburgh 2010 in a service broadcast 'live' from St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral, Palmerston Place. The preacher will be the Archbishop of York, the Most Revd Dr John Sentamu, and the Cathedral Choir and congregation will be joined by a choir gathered from Edinburgh's African congregations. Dr Glory Dharmaraj will give an address about Edinburgh 1910/2010 and the service will be led by the Cathedral's Provost, the Very Revd Graham Forbes.
