Mini-GAFCON will be held in Nigeria this week according to All Africa news. Discussions against same sex marriage are the primary agenda:
Tackling the incidence of same sex marriage will dominate discussions at the Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion’s Divine Commonwealth conference opening tomorrow.
The conference holding at the Christian Centre Abuja is follow up of its maiden edition last year.
“This conference is small edition of the universal one called GAFCON.
“We decided to do so because the attacks coming on the scripture are affecting the life of the people. If you believe wrongly, you’ll live wrongly.
“If you misinterpret the scripture to create allowance for homosexuality then you’re likely to accept it as a normal way of life.
Announcing the conference in Abuja on Wednesday, the Primate of the Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion, Most Rev Nicholas Okoh said the conference will draw participants from the UK, USA, Kenya, Uganda and West African states.
He lamented that many dioceses of his church have been badly affected by the floods that ravaged Nigeria.
He said members of the Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion all over Nigeria as well as those concerned about the ills bedeviling Nigeria will enter a seven-day fasting and praying which starts from 12th to 17th November 2012.
On police watching churches for worshippers to pray, he said, “It is very abnormal but it is forced on us by circumstances beyond our control.
