Archbishops, past and present, urge caution on Syria intervention

first_img Rector Belleville, IL Rector Hopkinsville, KY New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books [Anglican Communion News Service] Both Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and one of his predecessors George Carey have warned of the consequences of military action in Syria.Speaking to The Telegraph, Welby said U.K. Members of Parliament must be sure about the facts on the ground before acting amid “a really delicate and dangerous situation.”Welby, who is a member of the House of Lords, said there were “numerous intermediate steps” to consider between doing nothing and regime change, adding there was no “good answer” or any simple solutions.Lord Carey of Clifton, who was Archbishop of Canterbury from 1991 until 2002, said armed intervention in Syria could lead to a regional war.He said he shared the U.K. prime minister’s outrage at a government using chemical weapons against its own people, but was opposed to the U.K. entering into the conflict in Syria.In the interview with The Telegraph, Welby also highlighted the plight of Christians in the region saying that people there had a “terrible sense of fear about what might come out of, what might be happening in the next few weeks.”His immediate predecessor, Rowan Williams, has said nothing publicly on the subject of military intervention in Syria. However, he recently highlighted the persecution of Christians in countries around the world. Speaking to an audience at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, Lord Williams, who is now Master of Cambridge’s Magdalene College, told an audience that he himself had Christian friends in Syria who had disappeared and “whose fate remains unknown.”To read the articles in full visit: Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Pittsburgh, PA Archbishop of Canterbury, Middle East Featured Events Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Youth Minister Lorton, VA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Submit a Press Release Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Rector Albany, NY Rector Knoxville, TN The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Associate Rector Columbus, GA Submit a Job Listing Rector Tampa, FL Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR center_img Archbishops, past and present, urge caution on Syria intervention By ACNS staffPosted Aug 28, 2013 This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Martinsville, VA In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Curate Diocese of Nebraska Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Featured Jobs & Calls Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Collierville, TN Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.
