The news from Tanzania, with respect to the Anglican primates, doesn't bode well.
Whose the winner?Â This freechurchman thinks its the bishops. At every turn, you would think that the national churches or dioceses are the bishops because the debate is cast in terms of what bishops do, don't do, fail to do, say or respond.
The terms of the debate seem better fit for the churches in England and Nigeria than the United States. The whole thing smells of power grab. I trust that if an emergency General Convention is called, the laity, deacons and priests will be very vocal. In either case, this episode remind me why I will never be an Episcopalian. Never ever.
