Word on Wednesday: Hope for the Church in Controversy

Posted by Sophia Akouo, 8 Feb 2017

Bishop Wallace Benn speaks on the future for God's people and the future for our denomination.

God’s people will have a future — but the Church of England may not, if God removes the candlestick from her. Not that we need to be alarmist or pessimistic. But we must pray to the Lord who rules and reigns that he will bring a new reformation.

In this talk from the recent Church Society-Fellowship of Word & Spirit Conference, Wallace Benn looks at what Martin Luther said on the issue of leaving the church, and at some of the fault lines and potentials in the church today.

Sophia Akouo is an ordinary Anglican churchgoer who enjoys listening to good talks.
