Giles Frazier, the Vicar of Putney and an outspoken advocate of the inclusion of gay and lesbian people in the Anglicanism, has been named an honorary Canon in a Ghanian diocese.
Canon Frazier was installed by a group of Nigerian and Ghanian priests at the cathedral of the diocese of Sefwi-Wiawso in Ghana recently having been named to that position by Bishop Abraham Kobina Ackah.
As Jonathan Wynne-Jones writes:
By making the appointment, Bishop Abraham has sent out a message to his colleagues and held out a hand of friendship from the African church to the more liberal Church of England.
There are more pressing issues for Africa than those that have got Archbishop Akinola so wound up.
Fraser reports on his experiences on this trip to Ghana in the Church Times.
