The sermon is posted on the Archbishop’s website.

More complaints about “malice and slander,” disunity and division.

Meanwhile a vicar disciplined for marrying has been elected to the Synod of the Church of England.

The Archbishop remains on the fence, unable to choose between justice and injustice, love and its opposite.

I’d love to read a transcript or hear an audio of the ABC’s sermon. Any chance of that? I’m only 10 miles away at the moment, I would have loved to be a church mouse in the corner…

The video of the event is in the most recent story we have published.

It was cool when the ABC thanked +Shannon for permission to speak in his Diocese and thanked +Katherine for permission to speak in her Province. He stated that doing so has been the canon since the council of Nicaea and that it was important to keep the rules.

GAFCON might learn by his example.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
