Lambeth Conference Adopts a Statement that Condemns War

In 1957 the Lambeth Conference adopted a statement condemning war as a method of settling international disputes, finding it incompatible with Jesus’ teaching and urging extension of the right of conscientious objection. In 1962, the Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops passed a resolution recognizing “the validity of the calling of the conscientious objector and the pacifist and the duty of the Church fully to minister to him, and its obligation to see that we live in a society in which the dictates of his conscience are respected.” Since 1994, the liturgical calendar of the Episcopal Church (USA) has remembered Bishop Jones on the anniversary of his death, September 4.
