[Anglican Communion News Service] The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have written to members of the General Synod of the Church of England setting out the next steps following this week’s vote at Synod not to “take note” of a report on marriage and same-sex relationships.
“First, we want to be clear about some underlying principle,” they said. “In these discussions no person is a problem, or an issue. People are made in the image of God. All of us, without exception, are loved and called in Christ. There are no ‘problems’, there are simply people called to redeemed humanity in Christ.”
