I have been slow to comment on the so called "Global Anglican Future's Conference" (GAFCON), as Anglicans Online observed last week, one may just as well let the dust settle until we can really see what has happened.
Perhaps the most trenchant criticisms are those which suggest that a group met which (allegedly) represented an enormous number of the poorest Anglican Christians, and made no comment about poverty issues, and the health crisis on the African continent. Indeed a number of commentators have suggested that despite the continued insistence that it is the AfricanChurches whose noses are most put of joint by all this, the sort of realignment that GAFCON is promoting will actually serve the interests of rich disaffected Anglicans in North America, Australia and the UK.
Twas ever so
Some interesting reflections here
What is the Bishop of Rochester up to?
What is the Archbishop of Sydney up to?
What is the Archbishop of Canterbury up to?
