Ntagali in Kenya for global meet on church's future

From Uganda-

ARCHBISHOP Stanley Ntagali is expected to lead a delegation of 200 people from Uganda, to attend a global conference of church leaders to discuss the gay crisis in the Anglican Church.

The church leaders from Anglican provinces in Africa will gather in Nairobi beginning Monday October 21, under the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON). The meeting which runs up to October 26, comes in light of legalizing of same-sex marriages by western churches.

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby is expected to address the Primate Council ahead of the conference, comprising of leaders of some of the world's largest Anglican provinces, including Uganda.

GAFCON began after the Episcopal Church in America in 2003 elected Gene Robinson, an openly gay man and divorced father of two, as bishop for the diocese of New Hampshire. The inaugural meeting was held in June 2008 in Jerusalem.
