The Community of St Anselm have temporarily relocated to Canterbury and are spending this week praying in Canterbury Cathedral for the Primates as they continue their meeting.

“…it feels like the womb of God inside where there’s peace and where you feel HIS promises that HE has spoken…”

Really strange image. The only men I know with wombs are female-to-male transgender men!

And the purpose of being a member of the Anglican Communion is what exactly? It’s time to start a new communion with ELCA, the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada.

The rumor mill news spec out of the UK this morning talks of “sanctions” against TEC for appointing gay bishops according to articles posted at Thinking Anglicans. If this is at all accurate, it will be interesting to hear from Canada and Scotland.

Pardon my skepticism, but it looks as though this Archbishop of Canterbury created the Community of St. Anselm to put pressure on the primates.
