We still need to pray for the Espiscopal middle.. hmm that sounds so familiar. The silent group of individuals that are staying in their home churches because of many reasons.

We need to watch out for these guys now...

Mr. James Cameron and crew needs Jesus.

The original post: "Episcopalian leaders would rather divide from the greater Anglican community than agree to uphold historic Christian positions."

I've been following this situation for quite some time, and I've got to tell you, the situation is a good deal more complex than that.

The above is, indeed, the party line of the more conservative "Anglican" side. But those who wish to remain both Anglican and Episcopalian see themselves as upholding traditional Anglican positions on inclusiveness and the freedom of individual dioceses to make local policy.

I'm not sure how traditional inclusiveness is. But allowing bishops from other continents to try to make policy for American dioceses and to take them over is certainly an innovation.

At least in some respects it's definitely the Episcopalian leaders who are upholding tradition.
