On September 8, 2005, the Kairos Journal honored four leading Anglican archbishops with the Kairos Journal Award in recognition of their bold and consistent stand for historic orthodoxy. . . The 2005 award recipients are: The Most Rev. Peter Jasper Akinola, Archbishop of All Nigeria; the Most Rev. Henry Luke Orombi, Archbishop of the Province of Uganda; the Most Rev. Gregory James Venables, Archbishop of the Southern Cone of South America; and the Most Rev. Datuk Yong Ping Chung, Archbishop of the Province of South East Asia.
"The Kairos Journal Award is given to individuals who demonstrate exemplary fidelity to the authority of Scripture and exceptional pastoral courage in their efforts to restore the prophetic voice of the Church," said Journal publisher Emmanuel A. Kampouris.
Honorees were further chosen based upon their discernment of, and response to, what the Journal calls the "kairos moment" - a moment of cultural crisis demanding timely action from the Church. Theologian and author J. I. Packer and author and social critic Os Guinness introduced recipients to a gathering of interdenominational clergy and Christian leaders. Each archbishop offered a "word to the church" calling pastors to seize the kairos moment.
