Archbishop of Canterbury Thanks Nazir-Ali

Archbishop Justin Welby kept his comments short about the defection of Michael Nazir-Ali to Roman Catholicism.  Instead of a formal press release, he tweeted his comments on the Twitter social media platform.

“I am grateful for Michael Nazir-Ali’s decades of devoted service to the Church of England and the Anglican Communion.  His expertise in evangelism, interfaith dialogue, ecumenism, and theological education has been a great gift.

“He will continue to be a blessing to the global church as he joins the Ordinariate.  I will be praying for him and his wife, Valerie, that this new step in their journey might draw them ever close to God in Christ.”
