"This, we recognise, is our moment, our
unique time to stand up for what is right and true as previous generations have
done before us: to give witness to the value and dignity of every human life,
to the truth of marriage as the lasting union of man and woman, the foundation
of the family!"
Bishop Mark Davies of Shrewsbury has issued an advance statement of the sermon he is to give in his Cathedral this coming Christmas night, from which the above is an extract.
Bishop Mark: WE ARE ALL WITH YOU and will defend marriage: the lifelong union of a man and a woman, the foundation of the family, in the year ahead , with full commitment, asking God for the courage and tenacity we need.
