    [To the Traditional Anglican ping list: I am posting this article not because I think Anglicanism is fundamentally flawed (at the very least, such is a rush to judgement because it has not reached the final act), and not because I think the Continuing churches ought to be dismissed (I belong to a Continuing church, after all!). And I am not posting this to say Constantinople is better than Rome or anywhere else for "sincere Anglicans." I am posting this because I have found Orthodoxy difficult to understand, due to lack of exposure and communication. I am sure many of...

    The Continuing Anglican Churchman ^ | 4/04/2005 | St. James the Average
    This book, by Massey Hamilton Shepherd, is perhaps the ultimate book for the continuing Anglican churchman to own. It is a commentary on the 1928 BCP, and has insightful remarks about every part of the BCP. It is a fantastic historical and liturgical resource, and in that regard is useful for Anglicans and non-Anglicans alike. It has long been out of print ...

    Whose fight is this, anyway? Can't the huge and divisive controversy in the Episcopal Church just be handled by the clergy - who, after all, have the benefit of theological education and are in this business full-time? The first part of the answer to that question is that over three decades of continuing disagreement among the Church's clergy should prompt serious misgivings about their ability to alone resolve the deep problems we face in our Church today over differences in Scriptural authority and the role of the Bible in our faith and in our lives. The 1% of our Church...

    Spending the morning at Church of the Ascension in Montgomery is a great way to spend any Sunday morning. But I was particularly excited about going today because of a post card I received in the mail earlier this week. The text of that post card reads: Dear Friends in Christ, Much has happened these past few months, with regard to the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. Before everyone breaks for the summer, we will offer a month long adult class in Ascension Hall, led by John-Michael van Dyke, beginning this Sunday, April 3rd: "Where Do We Go From...

    April 4, 2005 My Dear Archbishop: You so very well know and are intimately familiar with the sorted history of events which have torn the fabric of our Communion and perhaps strained beyond repair the cordiality of relations between the leadership of the ECUSA and the broader Anglican Communion that I will refrain from a rendition of those unhappy events in this writing except to the extent necessary to that which compels this urgent appeal. Stepping appropriately forward the, on February 24, 2005, the Primates of the Anglican Communion assembled at Newry, Ireland, issued a Communiqué in which, inter alia,...

    WOODBRIDGE, VA (4/2/2005)--The following statement was made by Archbishop Greg Venables on Saturday morning, 2 April 2005, during the ACN/AAC conference, "From Surviving to Thriving: Anglicans in the 21st Century," that was held at Hylton Chapel in Woodbridge, Virginia, USA. "The Network is officially received and recognized by the Primates and by the Archbishop of Canterbury within the Anglican Communion, and you need to know that." "When we were discussing all these things, I think it was the Wednesday at Dromantine, Rowan Williams raised his hand at some point and just said, very quietly and very clearly, 'the Network is...

    Leaders in the Episcopal Church and its parent body, the 70 million-member Anglican Communion, told nearly 1,600 Episcopalians in Woodbridge, Va., yesterday to prepare to suffer for their beliefs and perhaps even be ejected from their denomination. ... Pittsburgh Episcopal Bishop Robert Duncan said conservative groups within the Episcopal Church "cannot deliver a blessed thing" in terms of protecting beleaguered conservatives in liberal dioceses. For instance, he said, conservative clergy at six Connecticut parishes are being threatened with defrocking by their bishop. "Brothers and sisters," he said, "it will get worse for us." ...
