Well, this is confusing! It's not clear to me whether Dr. Toon thinks the Affirmations of St. Louis accurately state the Anglican tradition, or not. Does your Continuing Anglican church (branch, subgroup, congregation?) recognize seven sacraments? And does Dr. Toon think that's good or bad?
He's sounding sort of Catholic to me, in a backhand, intentionally garbled sorta way.
And may I say that I am Officially Tired of people's capitalizing "The" in titles ... The Episcopal Church, The Affirmations, etc. I know The Salvation Army started it, but everybody else should knock it off!

As a member of an ACC parish, I don't believe all "Continuers" consider themselves more informed by the Missal than by the Thirty-nine Articles. There are those that do, but would NOT consider the differences as essential to faith.
persuade the Continuers to hold their cherished views as private opinion not required church doctrine; and then there can be real progress towards common witness and aims on the basis of unity on Scripture and classic Formularies.
Sounds fine to me. But what is he hoping will happen?
Are we to wait until every disenfranchised traditional Anglican is inter-communion before we note a common cause? until we've sorted out all of our differences and fight under the same banner?
That'll be a long wait. I don't believe the trend in the history of faith is towards unity.
This is a strange time indeed for conservatives to point fingers at one another. The conflict of High Church party vs. Low Church party has afflicted us since the Reformation. That a liberal third party has at last achieved victory over the ruins of the tEC is a lesson for the ages.
