On the recent GAFCON statement, this is the response from The Most Rev Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church of the USA.

"Much of the Anglican world must be lamenting the latest emission from GAFCON. Anglicanism has always been broader than some find comfortable. This statement does not represent the end of Anglicanism, merely another chapter in a centuries-old struggle for dominance by those who consider themselves the only true believers. Anglicans will continue to worship God in their churches, serve the hungry and needy in their communities, and build missional relationships with others across the globe, despite the desire of a few leaders to narrow the influence of the gospel. We look forward to the opportunities of the Lambeth Conference for constructive conversation, inspired prayer, and relational encounters."

Well ... it is a bit like "navel-gazing for Anglicans", I s'pose! It's a pity all this stuff gets so much publicity.

Reading Bishop Katharine's statement again, the thing that strikes me is "the latest emission from GAFCON". Sounds like some form of pollution ...!?!

Mind you ... ;-)
