Several posts have caught my eye.
At catholicity and covenant there is report with comment on an ordinariate for Roman Catholic priests coming over the Thames to the Anglican church (in this case of Peru). In the course of commenting the writer gives this definition of being Anglican:
'a way of being catholic apart from the juridicial form of Canon Law practised in the Roman Communion.'
It is a pleasure again on this blog to be able to cite Ruth Gledhill's work, now freed from behind a dictatorial paywall. Here she reports the Primate of Burundi (who did go the Primates' Meeting) chiding (in love) his fellow African primates:
"Archbishop of Burundi Bernard Ntahoturi, whose troubled country is one of the poorest in the world and where violence and human rights violations are a constant threat but where the UN presence is being downgraded, said: 'The Anglican Communion is our communion. We have a share, we have a place in that communion.... The Anglican Church of Burundi recognises there are problems in the Communion. The Communion is a family. When children disagree on certain issues, you do not separate. You meet and discuss those issues together.' "
In case recent readers here misunderstand a line I have been following: my first preference re the Primates' Meeting is that all showed up and talked; but when they didn't all show up, my second preference was that the shower uppers addressed the situation highlighted by the absentees.
Then, tackling some problems infiltrating at least a corner of the mind of the Communion, my colleague here in NZ, Tim Harris, Dean of Bishopdale Theological College, has continued his series of posts on headship and eternal subordinationism at Hikanos. The two most recent posts make some important points about how we understand 'obedience' within the Trinity.
