A Little Commentary On Recent Anglican News

Trying to get any feel for what is going on at the Lambeth Conference is much like having this kind of seat at the baseball game:

The liberal American bishops are trying their best to get their point across, as usual.

However, most folks around the Anglican Communion have observed the American Church since the wonderful General Conventions of 2003 and 2006.

I think they are looking elsewhere for a model. Nevertheless, people are trying to bridge gaps in the Anglican Communion, but it is being found difficult.

A lot of folks, including me, have really tried to sell the Windsor Report and compliance by everyone in the Anglican Communion. However, some folks just don’t observe the signs.

Then again, you have folks trying to apply this kind of logic to theology and ecclesialology:

Moreover, the Lambeth Process is a bit flawed, in that the indaba groups, where they should talk things out until the problems are solved, are truncated in such a way as if this is some easy path to fitness for the Anglican Communion.

Of course, what still eludes folks is that conscience prevents certain folks from sitting under the authority of those whose theological positions are so contrary because of the potential for abuse of power.

Starved for Anglican news today, I decided to check out the HOBD Listserv, where they were not only talking about Lambeth, but the oil crisis.

Scintillating discussion to say the least.

Of course, everyone keeps talking about the MDG’s, which have everything to do with governments and really nothing to do with church.

    Nice UN comment – with a rusty sign, too!

    As an obsessed, radical, extreme Red Sox fan that pic of the guy in the Cubs shirt with Nomar’s name on it broke my heart…

    I still haven’t gotten over the trade.
