The Most Reverend Philip Freier

Archbishop Freier addressing the Anglicans Together Dinner

We are the Church for the whole world—this is God's choice, not ours. This is critical to how we engage in community service. There is a tension between sectarianism and the common good, between tribalism and the whole community. Jesus' mandate in the Sermon on the Mount is a mandate of service to the whole world.
