Conversations are messy. Anglicans are diverse. Mission is complex. But combining these vital ingredients in #intersection17 produced something beautiful that will continue to grow.
“What a delight to be in a room with 100 active clergy,” says Bishop Hunter. “We listened to one another. We learned from one another. We anticipated the challenges of being in such a diverse group and now have the wisdom of being through it. One thing is top of mind for us: Everyone is welcome at the table. We love, respect and want to serve the whole breadth of the Anglican church, from the ‘lowest’ of the low church to the ‘highest’ of the high church, from those who support women in holy orders to those who do not. In future years, we will find an increasingly diversified panel of leadership to help us with these issues and to contribute to the task of reimagining mission.”
Dr. David Fitch shared that the conference was unlike any he has ever experienced.
“You can get thousands of people together at a mega conference, stir people for a couple days, then they leave and it’s over,” he said. “Or you can gather 100 leaders and architect two days of deep conversations with much prayer, and start a revolution.”
