Welcome from Adrian Thatcher
Greetings from the Trustees of Modern Church to everyone joining our conference, Living in Faith, Hope, and Love – Modern Church’s delayed response to the Church of England initiative, Living in Love and Faith [LLF]. Our conference was planned in 2018 for July 2020. The Trustees hoped to make a joyful, positive, affirmative theological contribution to the planned discussions, one worthy of the good news of Jesus Christ, in which all people whatsoever are welcomed and loved, and not merely told they are.
You all know that covid descended on us in March 2020, delaying our conference and interrupting the LLF process. In this short introduction I want to say something about LLF, and about the shape of the conference.
