Your love, O Lord, forever will I sing;
From age to age my mouth will proclaim your faithfulness.
These words from the first verse of Psalm 89 are our words as this Provincial Council opens. Our God has been so abundantly good to us - despite all the challenges we have faced - that we are profoundly aware of His love for us and His faithfulness to us. My task in this annual State of the Church Address is to rehearse some of what has happened, especially in this last year, and to remind us of how God's hand of blessing has been so obviously upon this movement to rebuild a biblical, missionary and united Anglicanism in North America.
