GAFCON head ratchets up attacks on CofE with call on evangelicals to act on threats to leave

"Not unto us, O LORD, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake" grant Carl and his family grace to get through this time of sorrow.
I ask that you strengthen him in the inward man with you grace. Enable him to praise you for the promises in Christ that he would never leave him nor forsake him. bring to his remembrance that Christ is a very present help during this time and always. Father his loss is great. Only you can sustain him and comfort Him. Do this in honoring the name of your son, our refuge, our strength, our deliverer. I, and many others, here are touched by this loss of a mother who is dear. Bless Carl. Bless him beyond his expectation with assurance and comfort.
