Bishop Murphy Issues Apologia for Missionary Society
Leading up to the Inaugural Assembly this week, Bishop Chuck Murphy has written a rationale or apologia outlining the value and distinctives for organizing as a missionary society. This document addresses five significant questions:
What, exactly, is a missionary society?
How is this different from the institutional church?
What makes us unique?
Why do I care?
How will this affect me?
Bishops John Rodgers and FitzSimons Allison have endorsed the paper, which is intended as a resource for clergy and congregations as well as those interested in becoming part of the Anglican Mission.
