Faithful Anglican. (Letters).

Dear editor,

I was very disappointed to read in the February issue of the church's action against Rev. Dorian Baxter. I have known Dorian for 13 years and always found him to be a very sincere devout Christian and faithful Anglican.

Dorian above all followed our Lord's teachings to take his teachings to all peoples, and there are many who would never have been brought to our Lord if they had not come in contact with Dorian.

Was not our Lord crucified because he displeased the Jewish leaders of the day by preaching to people whom they did not approve of? I have seen Dorian in action with young people, young people whom one doesn't see in churches every Sunday, because the Church does not speak to them.

I pray that there will be a healing between the church and Dorian, for the church needs evangelists like him, but at times I think that the Anglican church only gives lip service to evangelism. What is it afraid of?
