Since our earlier reports of news coverage, a number of comment articles that were published in the Church Times have become available online without subscription.

First, in the issue of 22 October, these appeared an additional news report: Frank talk with Josiah
There is a full transcript of the event reported here on the Pew Forum website.

There was also a Lambeth Commission: main points summary of the report, and the text of the draft anglican covenant.

The Church Times editorial is That the world may believe

There is also a series of analyses:
Has Robin Eames done it again? by Peter Lee, Bishop of Virginia

Why can’t we celebrate the diverse nature of our spiritual paths? We are coming together, slowly, but I believe, surely.

I guess the answer was given by Tom Wright. Some people are assuming that our differences are concerning things that are not of primary importance.
There’s two things wrong with this approach. (1) Never assume anything. (2) Who says they are not of primary importance?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
