Notes
"Plans for a season of repentance and prayer across the Anglican Communion next year [2019] have been put forward by a task group set up after the Primates' Meeting in 2016. The season would be launched with the publication of a specific prayer and would run from Pentecost until late in 2019. The group, which met in London, England, in March [2018] said prayers would focus on individual provinces week by week. Materials to support the initiative will be gathered and distributed by the Anglican Communion Office. Archbishop Ian Ernest, from the Church of the Province of the Indian Ocean, said the season would be the Communion's gift to a world in pain. 'The world knows brokenness', he said. 'The Anglican Communion has had its struggles and its brokenness, too. So, this is our response: our belief that prayer will help us to grow and to love in spite of differences'. The task group, established at the request of primates, aims to restore relationships and rebuild mutual trust and responsibility across the Communion". [Text of entire article.]
