Apology

The following motion was carried at the 165th Annual Session of the Synod of the Diocese of Adelaide on Saturday the 19th of October 2019:

With reference to the apology to LGBTIQ+ communities moved in the Synod of 2017 as follows:

We apologise to, and seek forgiveness from, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex or queer whom we have hurt by words and behaviour that have not displayed the love of God. We are deeply sorry for any harm we have done and repent of such ungodly behaviour.

A Prayer

O God, make the door of our Parish Church wide enough to receive all who need human love and fellowship and thy Fatherly care, and narrow enough to shut out envy, pride and uncharitableness; here may the tempted find help, and the sorrowful receive comfort, here may the careless be awakened to repentance, and the penitent be assured of thy mercy; and here may all thy children renew their courage; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
