A Statement by Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali

Posted by Kendall Harmon

From here:

Bishop Michael is not becoming a Roman Catholic. He intends to continue as a bishop in the Church of England and to encourage orthodox people, evangelical and catholic, in the world-wide Anglican Communion. As a long standing member of both ARCIC (Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission) and IARCCUM (International Anglican Roman Catholic Commission on Unity and Mission), he prays for principled unity based on the Bible and theological agreement between the Anglican and Roman Catholic churches. He believes that such unity may be achieved through continuing dialogue.

No duh.
When I first read the speculation that he would flee to Rome, I wondered where those folk had been hiding.
+Michael is thoroughly devoted to the Anglican Communion.

There will be no unity without dialogue, but those who believe that it will bring about unity are doomed to disappointment.

The media have been playing loose with these reports of notable Anglican bishops and clergy jumping ship. I’m glad +Michael set the record straight.
