Skip to comments."Choose this Day" Video [Anglican]

A group of lay people associated with the Anglican Communion Network has produced a video, Choose This Day, which discusses recent developments in ECUSA in theological perspective. It is well worth viewing, and may be found here. Please click on the first line, Main Video Selection. The worship service featured in the video was a Sunday morning Eucharist at my home parish, St. Vincent's Cathedral in Bedford, Texas. Dean Ryan Reed, the cathedral's pastor, is interviewed in the video along with the Rev. Kendall Harmon, Bishop Duncan of Pittsburgh and many others. A track from St. Vincent's choir also appears in the video. The film lasts about half an hour. Be sure to watch the Epilogue as well (where you learn that no Bibles were harmed in the filming of the video--thanks be to God!).
Yup. I can see why the Bishop of Kansas might not want this DVD floating around too!
Call me quite ambivalent about the things new technology makes possible, but score this one for the good side. They aren't limited to reaching just the senior wardens by postal mail anymore -- all they need is to reach one parishioner online.
Interestingly, the wife and I identified different players in this video. Some she was the only one who'd known about, others it was me.
I think the stakes may have been ratcheted up a bit.
Well, there's certainly something to be said for putting a face with a name. And I would say indeed that things have been ratcheted up a bit. I wonder how long it will take for every email list in ECUSA to have this sent out.
A good thing about this video is the call to the laity to fulfill its proper historical and ecclesiological role.
I like the video's title.
Excellent work in this video. My congregation has gone over to the enemy, horse foot and artillery -- led by gay priests and a group of liberals who really would be upset by this video. I will see if I can get it into the hands of the people who need to see it whether they like it or not.
On another level, though, it seems like a natural progression on modern history. First, we have Resolution 15 of the 7th Lambeth Conference in 1930, which changed the Anglican position on birth control. Then, in 1976, the General Convention held in Minneapolis approved the "ordination" of women. And now the current crisis.
So I guess the question I have is at what point do traditional Anglicans regard as the abandonment of traditional morals by the hierarchy? (asked with due respect, not trying to start a fight)
Both points are brought up in discussions.
