Shame.

Dear editor,

I understand that only nine bishops in the Anglican Church of Canada had the guts to stand firm in the practices of the old-fashioned gospel of how to deal with sin through the grace of Christ and his forgiveness and love (Sexuality questions leave church at odds; June/July issue). I admire the nine but hang my head in shame for those who have nothing more to offer than an immoral gospel.

The Anglican church, the one I once admired and loved, which was instrumental in my coming to Christ so many years ago, is fast going down the tubes. Is this really necessary? Could we not hear from a number of those who are hurting over the state of our church expressing their feelings in a letter before it is too late?
