Word on Wednesday: Lee Gatiss on the True Profession of the Gospel
Posted by Sophia Akouo, 6 May 2015
Lee Gatiss recently spoke at a conference for Anglican Evangelicals in America.
The media are all abuzz with talk of the new royal baby at the moment. So it seems a good time to mention the oath which the Kings and Queens of England have habitually made with regard to the Christian faith. They promise in the Coronation service to maintain and defend “the true profession of the gospel… the Protestant Reformed religion.”
Lee Gatiss, Director of Church Society, spoke to a conference of Anglican Evangelicals in The Episcopal Church, in New York last month. The Youtube video above is the first of his talks from that conference, where he speaks a little about Church Society itself and, more importantly, about the true profession of the gospel—the history and theology of Reformation Christianity in the English-speaking world.
