We give thanks to God for the election of the Rt. Rev. Dr. Foley Beach as Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America. We look forward to working with Archbishop-elect Beach who is committed to mission and the spread of the Gospel of Christ. We hope it is encouraging to the members of Forward in Faith that Archbishop-elect shares our position on Holy Orders. We regret that Archbishop-elect Beach will not be able to be present at our Assembly this year, but hope to have him present at a future Assembly. We extend our support for Archbishop-elect Beach for his work not only in leading ACNA but also for his work internationally. We ask our members to pray for grace, mercy and protection for him and his family.
