Archbishop Peter Jensen to retire at 70

From ABC Australia-

Archbishop Peter Jensen is a man of strong convictions and his faith has surely helped him through some of the more controversial times of the past 12 years at the head of the Anglican Church in Sydney.

Under the rules of the Sydney diocese, Jensen must retire at the age of 70 and will step down on his July 11, his birthday.

But it was American evangelist Billy Graham's visit to Sydney in 1959 that set Jensen on his path to clergy. When Graham challenged his audience in Sydney to give their life to Jesus Christ, Jensen accepted.

"That moment was a defining moment. I decided, yes! That's what I wanted to do. And so I joined the hundreds of others, went down the front, committed my life to Jesus Christ and never regretted it," Jensen told 702 ABC Sydney Drive's Richard Glover.
