Gafcon is a prophetic movement, putting the Bible back at the heart of the Anglican Communion, but above all it is a spiritual movement and I am delighted to introduce a weekday devotional 'Lift Up Your Hearts'. These devotionals will greatly enrich our common life and I urge you to share them widely!

We welcome Rev. Dr. Stephen Noll who will be contributing this month to “Lift Up Your Hearts” on the subject of “Marriage According to the Book of Common Prayer”. Dr. Noll is an Anglican priest in the Anglican Church in North America, where he is Consultant on Marriage, Family, and the Single Life. He has also been active in the Gafcon movement as a member of the Statement Group at GAFCON 2008, 2013 and 2018 and Convener of the Gafcon Task Force on Women in the Episcopate. In addition to his latest book, he has written, The Global Anglican Communion (2018) and he blogs at www.stephenswitness.org. He also brings a depth of international experience as he was a Vice Chancellor (President) of Uganda Christian University in Mukono Uganda from 2000-2010.
