Join us for an Anglicans for Life Quasar Conference, March 29, 2014
The Diocese of South Carolina’s chapter of Anglicans for Life will be hosting a AFL Quasar Conference on Saturday, March 29 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at St. Paul’s Church in Summerville, SC.
The cost is $15 and includes lunch and materials.
Anglicans for Life’s Quasar Conference energizes God’s people to affirm life and shine the light of God’s love on the Culture of death. During the Quasar Conference, Georgette Forney, President of Anglicans for Life, will illuminate the truth of abortion and euthanasia.
- What are the current statistics?
- Who are the people behind the statistics?
- Why do people choose abortion or euthanasia?
- What methods are used?
Once we have highlighted the realities, the last hour of the conference will answer the question, “Are these pastoral issues for the church?” and focus on energizing ministry that is God-centered and results-driven!
Get involved and protect all life...

By the unanimous vote of the 222nd Convention of the Diocese of South Carolina we authorized the formation of an Anglicans for Life chapter in the Diocese and formalized our official teaching on the sanctity of life. The resolution is listed below.
Anglicans for Life Resolution
Whereas we are living in a time of increasing cultural confusion regarding issues of human life,
And whereas the “Declaration of Life Statement” (below) made by Anglicans for Life is consistent with the faith “once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3), the “doctrine, discipline, and worship of Christ as this Church has received them” (“Ordination of a Priest,” BCP p. 526) and the vision of Bishop Lawrence to “Make Biblical Anglicans for a Global Age,”
Be it resolved that this 222st Convention of the Diocese of SC endorses the “Declaration of Life Statement” from Anglicans for Life and
Be it further resolved that, recognizing the tragic dimension of all abortion and the call of Christ on his Church to show concern and compassion to all, we emphatically oppose abortion as a means of birth control, family planning, sex selection, or any reason of mere convenience and
Be it further resolved that, recognizing the economic, social, and emotional difficulties of a crisis pregnancy, we emphatically encourage the Church to be Christ-like in its witness, sharing the burdens and the joy of a family that chooses life and
Be it further resolved that the Diocese establish a Diocesan-wide Anglicans for Life chapter, which would include voluntary representation from every parish. The goal of which would be to organize and maintain a witness and ministry for life within the Diocese as we proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Anglicans for Life
Declaration of Life Statement
We believe God, and not man, is the creator of human life. Therefore, from conception to natural death we will protect and respect the sanctity of every human life. Furthermore, we recognize that the unjustified taking of life is sinful, but God gives absolution to those who ask for His forgiveness.
