looks like the anglican church is bending over backwards to keep itself together. they'll be a pretzel soon.
my question is, do they really think a written constitution is going to fix this gay mess they've gotten themselves into? what would the constitution say exactly? please don't leave?
(the archbishop of canterbury) dr rowan williams said that Christians who faced conflict had to try to see the position from the point of view of their enemies. which enemy would that be, dr williams?
according to williams, "we have to let the fear and suspicion that another is going through be felt in our own hearts and minds."
is that what Christ meant when He told us, "peace i leave with you, my peace i give to you; not as the world gives do i give to you. let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid"? [jn.14.27] ohhh. i didn't realize that He was the author of confussion. oh, wait! "God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints." [1cor.14.33]
those silly anglicans, they keep struggling for unity. you want real unity, folks? dive in!
thanks to mr. cacciaguida for the link.
