Update from Chairman of Headway (Ireland) – March 2018
Dear members and friends of “Headway Ireland”,
Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is absolute truth and absolute love (John 1v14).
Our Headway Executive Committee met in February and it was encouraging to receive reports of new members joining and to hear feedback about our recent statements.
Here are some news items and dates for your diary.
In February the Faith and Order Committee of the Methodist Church in Ireland invited Headway to submit the name of an evangelical theologian to speak at a day Conference in Belfast. Rev Canon Vaughan Roberts, rector of St Ebbs, Oxford and President of the Proclamation Trust, agreed to come and speak on the subject: “The Authority of Scripture in relation to same sex marriage.” Vaughan gave us a strategic, sound and inspiring presentation and we are most grateful to Vaughan for his gracious leadership.
