    CHARLESTON, SC: (1/20/2006)--If the Archbishop of Canterbury and his 2008 Lambeth Design Team continues a "business-as-usual" Lambeth conference, with North American churches present, the Anglican Communion will incur the judgment of God and effectively put an end to the Communion as a serious, respected Christian body. The Rev. Dr. Stephen Noll, Episcopal theologian and Vice-Chancellor of Uganda Christian University, told more than 300 delegates to a "Mere Anglican" conference here, that changing the subject and "moving along," is no longer acceptable, and that what happened at Lambeth '98, which wrestled with central issues of human sexuality, cannot be glossed over....

    "Primates should take lead in forming new Anglican Communion if no discipline available and no official instrument for reform is forthcoming" The Lambeth Commission in its Windsor Report "recommended and urged the primates to consider the adoption by the churches of the Communion of a common Anglican Covenant which would make explicit and forceful the loyalty and bonds of affection which govern the relationships between the Churches of the Communion" [Windsor Report, pp. 62-64].

    Christopher Johnson has been offering his thoughts about the possible outcomes of the 2006 Ice Cream Social in Columbus.  Since I think there is zero chance that ECUSA will change its course, and 100% chance that Convention will pass some greasy resolution apologizing for hurting overseas feelings and by the way here's a bucket of money if you let us hang around, the only real interest is whether the leaders of the Rebel Alliance will screw their courage to the sticking place and separate.  This Convention will also elect a successor to Frank Griswold, and that successor will either be...

    The other day, I wandered the Episcopal News Service archives in search of ECUSA reaction to the 1998 Lambeth Conference sexuality resolution.  As I read, two facts quickly became apparent.  The rupture in the Anglican world began five years before Gene Robinson got his pointy hat.  And orthodox Anglicans can't say that we weren't warned: Bishops of the Episcopal Church have been struggling to explain the meaning of this summer’s Lambeth Conference to the folks back home. Some of them took advantage of the technological facilities-over 200 computer terminals spread across the Kent University campus, thanks to a grant from...

    THE Anglican Church moved closer to schism yesterday when members of its central administrative council formally asked the Churches of Canada and the US to go. Unconvinced by the justifications offered by both Churches on Tuesday for their actions in ordaining an openly homo- sexual bishop and authorising same-sex blessings, members of the Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Nottingham asked them to leave the council and its central finance and standing committees. Although the motion invites the Churches to withdraw voluntarily, it amounts in effect to a punishing expulsion. The debate was held behind closed doors at Nottingham Univers-ity yesterday,...

    Why are we getting thrown out of the Anglican Communion? It is a night to remember. We celebrate ours as the most advanced of cultures. We speed across time as through uncharted waters. But it is dark, and the air of the Anglican Communion is chilled. We are the Titanic. Only 100 feet ahead is the twin-peaked iceberg – General Convention 2006 and Lambeth 2008. In charity, may I tell you why we’re getting thrown out of the Anglican Communion, so long our home? The framework of love and truth that is that Communion requires our expulsion. In America, someone...

    "To be in Communion" means to have open access to the divine nourishment which the re-enactment of Jesus's Last Supper makes available to the faithful: to feast at the Lord's Table. But to be in Communion also means to be in good standing with each other and to agree on doctrinal essentials. The state of Communion between the international Anglican Churches' 38 provinces has finally been blown apart by the American consecration of a gay bishop and the Canadian decision to bless gay marriages, and by the angry reaction of most of the rest.

    Episcopalians aren't making a mass exodus from their church, but dioceses across the country are doing a slow bleed as members realize that a much-anticipated report released six weeks ago has no teeth and that the denomination's ordination of a homosexual bishop will go unpunished.     The Windsor Report, which sought to resolve the Anglican Communion's crisis over authority and homosexuality, criticizes same-sex blessings in U.S. and Canadian churches and the ordination last year of Bishop V. Gene Robinson. But the report also reprimands Third World bishops who have crossed diocesean lines to help marooned conservative parishes.     Within a few...

    For part one, click here. The Bishop of North Dakota on the Windsor Report (from titusonenine): The Report clearly indicates that the controversial actions of the General Convention of 2003 in consenting to the election of a non-celibate gay man to the episcopate and in allowing the experimentation of liturgies to bless same-sex unions were inappropriate and damaging to the Anglican Communion. In light of the clear teaching and position of all four Anglican Instruments of Unity (the Archbishop of Canterbury, Lambeth Conference, Primates’ Meeting and Anglican Consultative Council), these actions are interpreted as showing disregard for the moral authority...

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 (UPI) -- The Anglican Communion's Lambeth Commission tried to avoid a split Monday by asking its American branch to do something highly fashionable these days -- apologize. As if they had just spilled some sherry on their hostess' new carpet, 50 prelates of the Episcopal Church USA, known as ECUSA, were to "apologize" for having consecrated Canon Vicki Gene Robinson, an active homosexual, as bishop of New Hampshire. That's what the Lambeth Commission, set up a year ago to prevent a schism, demanded of the Episcopalians. Primates from the southern hemisphere, where the majority of the world's...

    The call was made by the Lambeth Commission, set up after the ordination of Gene Robinson threatened to split the worldwide Anglican church. Commission chairman Irish Anglican leader Robin Eames concluded: "There remains a very real danger that we will not choose to walk together." The report called for a moratorium on the consecration of gay candidates. It demanded an explanation from the Anglican Church in the US, known as Episcopalian, about "how a person living in a same gender union may be considered eligible to lead the flock of Christ". Scripture must be used to back up the explanation,...

    Although it would be hyperbolic to suggest that Monday, October 18, 2004 is the most important day in Anglican Christianity since Henry VIII first noticed Anne Boleyn, that day, when the Lambeth Commisssion report is scheduled to be released, is surely in the top five. The report will only make recommendations but these recommendations will shape the course of Anglicanism for at least the next generation or two. What might the report contain? As I see it, the Commission had four options: (1) ECUSA will be immediately suspended from all participation in the Anglican Communion unless it repents of the...

    Anglicans to shun gay-row bishops By Jonathan Petre, Religion Correspondent (Filed: 03/09/2004) Liberal American bishops face having their invitations to Anglican summits withdrawn by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, if they continue to defy the worldwide Church over homosexuality. Under tough proposals likely to be recommended by the Lambeth Commission next month, the liberal leadership of the American Episcopal Church could be excluded from policy making and shunned by the vast majority of Anglicans. Bishops who publicly support the consecration of Canon Gene Robinson as Anglicanism's first actively gay bishop last year or who authorise gay "marriages", both...

    Roman Catholics issue warning to Eames Number: 5724 Date: July 1, A right of appeal to the Archbishop of Canterbury may be needed to resolve disputes in the Anglican Communion, argue a group of Roman Catholic and Anglican leaders in a submission to the Lambeth Commission led by Archbishop Robin Eames. The submission by a sub-commission of the Inter Anglican and Roman Catholic Commission on Unity and Mission, claims that the crisis represented by the consecration of a practising homosexual bishop in the United States could seriously damage relationships between the two Churches. They argue that the current situation suggests...
