Titusonenine has alerted its readers to an interview in which N.T. Wright, Bishop of Durham, England, describes the ECUSA, if not the whole Anglican Communion as at a brink over the homosexuality debate.
I comment on it here just to show that the debate anthill is focused on is indeed a mountain of a problem. Conservatives are not making a mountain out of an (may I say) anthill.
Wright said: If [ECUSA General Convention] vote to go with the Windsor Report, then that will pull the whole thing back from the brink.
One can easily read that the whole thing means the crisis involving the whole Communion. This is confirmed by follow-up questions and answers.
The interviewer asked Wright if a schism in the worldwide [Anglican] movement is inevitable. The Bishop, who has many connections all over replied: I think it is quite possible.
He has not gotten good encouragement from contacts in the U.S. On the possibility of conforming to The Windsor Report, Wright said: My friends in America tell me on many different sides of this issue that thats actually very unlikely .
Also, this plea: Please pray for Rowan Williams, because he needs prayers right now. Hes got some very difficult decisions to make.
We will continue to do our little bit at the anthill to try and strengthen any Deputies who might tune in. See the post today with a statement of our location in the argument.
