[Christ] is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.  Colossians 1:18

"The final statement was received in lamenting silence as we realised the solemnity of the moment. I’d hope and prayed it would be so, so when it happened like that, it was a tearful moment. The Anglican Communion is being reset and it’s both wonderful and daunting to be a small part of that history."
"The tone of this conference has been strangely marked both by overflowing joyful thanksgiving and by deep grief and repentance. This morning Kanishka Raffel (Archbishop of Sydney) preached on Colossians 3. ....Once again the focus has been on Jesus ...the motivation and inspiration, the judge of every enterprise, his approval be all that you desire. The church’s identity is shaped by the character of Christ. Kanishka challenged us to clothe ourselves in him and to repent where we have failed to do so."
"It was humbling to hear how our story, as a church and a network, had encouraged him! He urged us to build our church on the unchanging word of God"
" ...I’ve been struck by how much many of these brothers are sisters have a great deal to teach us about what being faithful to Christ looks like, and in particular, what such faithfulness might cost."
