Last night Archbishop Jeronymos of Mwanza, Grace Mathews and Mark Oxbrow arrived at St. Vlash monastery. For those of you still on the way here I can tell you it is a very beautiful location with the cathedral, a place of prayer, at the heart of everything.

At the liturgy this morning we prayed for you all and for our time together. This will be an important week as we reflect together on all that God has called us to, His gracious invitation to be participants in His mission, each from our own traditions. For me this is a foretaste of the heavenly worship of all nations, tribes, languages, and people before the throne of the Lamb of God (Rev. 7:9).
