Archbishop Hiltz says recent joint assembly ”˜Spirit-filled, spirit-led’ gathering

Archbishop Fred Hiltz described the recently concluded Joint Assembly as a “spirit-filled, spirit-led” gathering that can only strengthen the full communion relationship of the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC).

“The very fact that these two churches, who have all kinds of challenges in front of them, were prepared to make this step to meet is really quite incredible,” said Hiltz, primate of the Anglican church. “What I saw through the Joint Assembly was a very positive, upbeat spirit.” The assembly was held July 3 to 7, at the Ottawa Convention Centre.

    [blockquote]”Reacting to statements made by some members that allowing same-sex marriage is a big leap from the blessing of same-sex unions, the primate said, ‘None of that surprises me. There’s nothing new in that perspective; that’s been there in the life of the church for many years.’” -[/blockquote]

    He should have said, “Nothing to see here, muddle on, all is well…”

    “They have healed the wound of my people lightly, saying, ‘Peace, peace,’ when there is no peace.”

    When thing go the way they want, many liberal-revisionists will claim that the proceeding was “Spirit-led,” like when some evangelicals want to shut down all opposition, they’ll say, “The Lord put it on my heart.” Thus as many claim the Lord put it on their hearts to leave the ACC or TEC, those who remain can claim the resulting majority votes that further their agenda as Spirit-led.
