Let’s begin the day with a bit of conversation:
If Rowan Williams the Archbishop of Canterbury decides that the Anglican Communion should become a two-track enterprise, with those churches that assent fully to whatever it is he wants them to assent to being allowed full use of the pool and weight room, while those churches that are historically Anglican, but unwilling to offer the necessary assents, being confined to the smoking lounge and the men’s grill,
and if, the Episcopal Church is so confined
a) what difference will it make in practice?
b) do you care?
c) will anyone outside the Communion care?
and d) Does it feel to you sometimes as though we are writing rules for membership in a tennis club in a city that is on fire?
