Here’s the latest:
Much of the Anglican world must be lamenting the latest emission from GAFCON. Anglicanism has always been broader than some find comfortable. This statement does not represent the end of Anglicanism, merely another chapter in a centuries-old struggle for dominance by those who consider themselves the only true believers. Anglicans will continue to worship God in their churches, serve the hungry and needy in their communities, and build missional relationships with others across the globe, despite the desire of a few leaders to narrow the influence of the gospel. We look forward to the opportunities of the Lambeth Conference for constructive conversation, inspired prayer, and relational encounters.

God, I feel dirty just reading that. I guess Ms. Schori doesn’t like being “called out” by half the Anglican communion! Seriously though, whatever you might think of GAFCON, with her latest missive, KJS shows her true colors: condescending and colonial. Oh – and “a few leaders”? 291 bishops is not “a few leaders”.
Once again, 815 blinks at reality!
