Comments: opinion a week before Christmas

No-one in their right mind wants to see the end of the See of Canterbury as the Founding Province of the Anglican Communion. However, grown-up children of the federation need to be given space to be - as God is calling them to be - independent, and yet remaining in filial relationship, by Love, rather than paternalistic discipline. Trust ought to be the watchword for our Communion - not Covenant. Our deepest Unity is in Christ alone!

Nick Spencer's piece is both (a) deeply worrying, and (b) what one already knows. So the task, as ever, but with especial urgency now, is serious evangelism but with a serious concern with objections and difficulties. Exit/exeunt immediately Alpha/Emmaus/the entire corpus of NT Wright.

Is it just me, or do these collective "opinions" point to a Great Winter of Our Anglican (among others?) Discontent?

Everything's "bleak", everything's shrinking, everything's falling apart.

Wow, if we humans were (eternally) left to our own devices, we'd be in bad shape! ;-/

It's what sells, JCF!

"Keep Calm and Carry On" only sells as a printed slogan.

Whenever the world is driven by numbers/money/market-share/whatever, lack is the only news that's fit to print. If we had had modern reporters at the tomb on Easter Sunday, the reports would've been:

"Shocking Wave of Corpse Snatchings!"
"Sleepy Centurions: How Safe ARE We?"

When the Kingdom is finally here, everyone will go out of business.
