Some Anglicans haven't got an original idea in their heads:
A number of bishops from Province 9 of the Episcopal Church have joined a coalition of Central and South American bishops in calling for a third way in the Anglican Communion.
So the Third Way needs a third way?
Latin Americans perceive themselves being forced to side with either the Episcopal Church or those in the Anglican Communion who oppose what the Episcopal Church has done concerning the New Hampshire consecration, but neither position reflects our thinking and spirit, according to a number of participants to a Latin American Congress which met Oct. 5-10 in Panama City, Panama. The group proposed creation of the Global Center to prevent further polarization which they said places the unity of our Communion at risk.
How's this Global Center thing going to hold the Communion together?
A statement released Oct. 13 by the Anglican Episcopal Church of Brazil seeks to emphasize renewal in respect to plurality, diversity and inclusivity that have been a permanent sign of Anglicanism, and of our spirituality based on the Sacred Holy Writs, the Creeds and the basic teaching of our doctrine.
In other words, free Anglican bumper stickers. Oh and they want to reconcile too. Can't forget that buzzword.
The bishops invited other provinces that do not fit into the current vision of North and South to join them in seeking reconciliation through this
Don't say it. For the love of God, please don't say it!
between the dominant factions within the Communion. In support of these aims, the bishops proposed a program of continuing education for Latin American bishops and clergy and lay leaders, increased communications, and a coordination of policies among Province 9 and the provinces of Central and South America.
More yammering. Gosh, what a surprise.
