There is a very interesting debate rumbling in and around the CofE at the moment. The gist of it is fairly easy to get hold of by reading this report of a broadside from Bishop Pete Broadbent as he takes on critics of a recent lead of the English bishops re better provision of leadership in the future CofE. Ian Paul (of Psephizo blog) also joined in. (Some of these matters were touched on here a post or two ago).
Read a fuller statement from +Peter here.
Gillan Scott (a man) takes up the matters in a post on Archbishop Cranmer's blog.
Addressing the future of a declining church with a vision for how decline might be reversed touches on many themes found (in my experience) in discussions about the Anglican church of these islands and where it is going:
- connecting with an irreligious society/promoting costly discipleship.
I think +Pete, Ian and Gillan speak well, pertinently and insightfully.
What do you think?
What are they saying which ACANZP could take note of?
