Over the coming week, we will be featuring the participation of Truro Church clergy and laity in Coventry Cathedral's Faith in Conflict conference. Faith in Conflict is dedicated to helping Christians of all walks to better understand and manage conflict as it occurs in the life of congregations and religious communities.
Truro Anglican Church occupies a special place at this gathering. Conference sponsor and the new Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, has invited our Rector, Tory Baucum, and Shannon Johnston, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, to jointly address the delegates on their efforts to build a relationship of peace in the midst of deep, substantive divisions over critical issues of faith. Accompanying Tory are several members of Truro Anglican including Chap and Sharon Peterson, Jackie March, Isabelle Baucum and Brent Orrell (Vestry Warden for the Congregation).
The purpose of these entries is to provide an account of conference events and to share with the members of Truro Anglican and other interested readers what this conference signifies in the life of our parish as we seek to model how to worship a Lord who perfectly combines truth and love.
