|Archbishop Nicholas Okoh/ NIGERIA : Homosexuality is ¨intended to destroy the established standard of morality¨ HERE|
¨The Primate said that the creation and inauguration of the Missionary Diocese of Trinity is a child of necessity to salvage the expired gospel that is being propagated in the TEC and Anglican Church of Canada.¨
¨SUNDAY, August 19, 2012, was a memorable day in the history of the Anglican Communion Worldwide.
It was when the Primate of Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh; the Primate of the Anglican Church in North America, Most Rev. Robert Duncan, accompanied by three Nigerian Archbishops (Most Rev. Olu Akinyemi, Most Rev. Ikechi Nwosu and Most Rev. Ignatius Kattey), and nine other Bishops, inaugurated a new diocese in North America.
The duly elected and consecrated Bishop of the Diocese, Rt. Rev Amos Akinseye Fagbamiye, was also enthroned at the Anglican Cathedral Church of the Resurrection, Indianapolis.
The new cathedral was filled with the glory of God and people from within and outside the United States of America and Canada who gathered to witness the historic event.
In his sermon, Primate Okoh thanked the Missionary Bishop of CANA, Rt. Rev Martyn Minns, for his commitment to the mission of the Church. He congratulated the Bishop and members of CANA on birth of the new diocese. He also empathised with some of the CANA churches that lost their buildings after years of litigations with The Episcopal Church of the USA.
He said: “The loss is clear sign of the sickness afflicting our Communion. Those churches should see this new reality as a privilege for them to serve the Lord in a different way, move them out of their comfort zone, give them opportunity to share in the call of Christ, like the early apostles, and God’s way of doing new things in their lives”.
He asked them to remain focused and pray that their courage would not fail and that God would grant them grace to stand firm till the end...¨ there is more, HERE
