Archbishop Hiltz to update other primates on state of Canadian church

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams has asked the primates (national archbishops) of five provinces, including the Anglican Church of Canada, to reflect on the impact that the current Anglican conflict over sexuality has had on the mission and priorities of their churches.

Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, said that he and the primates of the U.S. Episcopal Church, Uganda, Pakistan, and South Africa, have been invited to offer their reflections during the primates’ meeting scheduled Feb. 1 to 5 in Alexandria, Egypt.

An interesting list.  The two major violators of the Lambeth 1998 resolution, an African country frequently seen as in the middle on the debate, and two countries likely to be very much opposed to the innovations and who are also faced daily with militant Islamism.  I don’t know the size of the church in South Africa, but Uganda’s Anglican population is much larger than the U.S. and Canada’s combined.

All is swell.
Bishops of the ACC dropping out from under the warm embrace of Hiltz. Attendance plummetting. Giving down. Parishes leaving. Sounds like the Gospel has hit home and that people ARE responding as necessary…..against the current leadership of the ACC.  Backfiring will do that. The “update” will not mention this fact.

Whenever revisionist bishops want to take attention away from their innovative heresies they hammer home the “mision, mission, mission” mantra to distract the lay folk from their behind the scenes deceit and complicity (Hello…Neff Powell of SW VA).  Problem is in ACC…as elsewhere, that the curtain is threadbare and the revisionists’ hind ends are sticking out.

Rowan Williams’ priority as the Anglican Communion fragments amid heresy and recriminations?  Seek “reflections.”

Words fail.
