Reconciling the Jurisdictional Chaos [Anglican]
The Continuing Anglican Churchman ^ | 11/25/2005 | The Rev. James Gordon Anderson

This is the title of an article that may be downloaded from the Christian Challenge from a recent conference about the Affirmation of St. Louis that a couple of jurisdictions participated in. While there are several articles from this conference that are worth downloading and reading, I thought that this was the best. Fr. Warren Tanghe, SSC (chaplain of All Saints' Convent - Catonsville, MD) exhorts orthodox Anglican parishes in various regions to enter into grassroots partnerships to foment a sort of "bottom-up" organic unity, rather than legislating a top-down merger, as those have been prone to fail in the past. Bp. Paul Hewitt, SSC of the Diocese of the Holy Cross has a response which includes nine suggestions for concrete action. Many of these steps are being taken right now, which is surely positive. It is a good article that is well worth reading, and may give each of us ideas as to what we can do in our part of the country to promote unity amongst orthodox Anglicans.
