Interesting new blog: "Continuum" [Continuing Anglican]
Prydain ^ | 12/11/2005 | Will

There are not very many blogs out there that focus on the Continuing Anglicans, those churches that split from ECUSA in the 1970's over the ordination of women. Until this week, the only blogs of this type of which I was aware were The Continuing Anglican Churchman and Continuing Home, both of which are fine blogs and make a needed contribution to the discussion of alternatives to ECUSA.

This week I found out about Continuum, which appears to be a group blog with contributors such as Fr. Robert Hart and Fr. Matthew Kirby. In addition, the prime mover behind "Continuum", a man who goes by the name "Albion" is no slouch either; he writes very well and is in the process of joining the Anglican Church in America, with a view towards eventually being ordained. This blog has a great deal of potential, I think, and would be worth checking out.

Traditional Anglican ping, continued in memory of its founder Arlin Adams.

FReepmail sionnsar if you want on or off this moderately high-volume ping list (typically 3-9 pings/day).
This list is pinged by sionnsar, Huber and newheart.

I'm not so sure that this blog should be recommended. The top item refers to the folks who went to Iraq to generate some anti-American propaganda as "Peacemakers" who have "been striving for the betterment of life in Iraq."

While is is good an proper to pray for their safe delivery, the leftist spin makes the whole site suspect. Read more about the hostages and their group here:

The second is a good point and so the blog is worth watching. Liberalism is not unknown in the Continuum churches (even my own! and from parishioners who have definitely long been part of our church family).

But I will not toss it on one element alone. Note also: "I had expressed discomfort with women’s ordination and outright opposition to the ordination of practicing homosexuals to Holy Orders."

I, for one, would hate to be held to account and forever labeled for every mis-expression I've made.

Let's give the bloggers here at Continuum some time. There's little enough, as Will at Prydain notes, coming from the Continuing Churches. If we see here a leftist element, it's quite worth watching; if it's a misstatement we'll see that soon enough.

Fair enough, but remember, giving folks the benefit of the doubt a generation ago is what got the Episcopal Church to its current state. We're starting to see the early signs of problems in our denomination as well as the generation who led the sucessful fight 40 years ago retire or move to the Church Triumphant.
