impaired communion ahead
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Feb 25, 2005
When you're in mid-Atlantic, and the fourth engine on your aircraft just has failed, few flight attendants could spin it for your fellow passengers as happy news with more alacrity than ECUSA's Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold. Listen to him on the impending disintegration of the Anglican Communion (thanks to Bill Cork for the link):
Clearly, all parts of the communiqué will not please everyone. It is important to keep in mind that it was written with a view to making room for a wide variety of perspectives. I continue to have faith and confidence in the many ways in which the mystery of communion is lived among us, and am grateful that bonds of understanding and affection to bind us together and call us to an ever deeper and more costly living out of the reconciliation brought about by Jesus through the Cross. Again this week it was revealed that so much more unites us than divides us.
That last sentence is a gem of ecclesiastical disinformation. Remember those biologists who try to impress us with the fact that we share 96% of our genes with chimpanzees?
