My understanding of TEC in relationship to the wider Communion is that it includes a significant movement who want TEC to do its best in this relationship to demonstrate that it is a fine upstanding Anglican church. That movement led to resolution BO33 (see a post below re an update on another movement's push re BO33). I also understand that there are those in TEC who are willing to say, If the Communion will not walk with us - sad - but we will walk where we are walking, even if that means walking apart.
Then there seem to be some in TEC who may not care one whit either way, since their walk is so ... out there ... in a weird direction.
Like this story of the retired TEC bishop (but actively in charge of a San Francisco church) working on his memoirs, including personal reflections on the contributions entheogens have made to his mystical experiences.
Like me you may not have known what 'entheogens' are. (The word literally refers to generating the divine within). Here is the handy Wikipedia on Entheogens.
Well, ACANZP has its critics too - that we are liberal etc. But I cannot think of one Anglican down under I know who would take entheogens or feed them to their cats!
I wonder if Otis Charles has an idea at all how difficult he makes the task of the movement in TEC who are really, really trying to assist TEC to do its best in its relationship with the Communion?
