It’s still in the news cycle.
The Anglican Mission in England has just launched a website. You can find it here. Of particular interest is the article by Richard Bewes, the former Rector of All Souls. I really enjoyed the comment, ‘We must trust that comment on this development will focus on what has actually been said and done – the strategy, and the commitment to remain in the Church of England – rather than base its evaluation on conjured-up hypothetical suppositions about what might or might not happen in the future’.
The Church Times has commented on The Archbishop of Canterbury’s statement. And Ed Thornton, the author of the piece, has quoted from this blog. Whilst it’s a little unnerving to find yourself quoted in print, I think he’s reported what I wrote with fairness. I think he’s accurately summmarised our situation. And I appreciate that. He does however make one mistake; Christ Church Balham is not an AMiE church.
