An Important Conversation

Fellow Northern Indianan, newly-minted PhD, short-term missionary that my parish (modestly) helps support, and incoming editor of The Living Church--and my good friend--Christopher Wells has participated in a quite important dialogue-tiliting-toward debate with the Revd Dr William Franklin of the Anglican Centre in Rome over some of the factors underlying our current Anglican Angst. If you're a true Anglican geek, watch the whole thing (some 47 minutes). Or see the trailer here.

Fr Dan,
Rev. Franklin might as well be speaking for TEC in this piece since he sees the problem as grievances that don't justify a schism not differences in theology. This is really an extension of a culture war to him. He even defends the resistance to the covenant on the part of TEC saying the the covenant is a "new Anglicanism". I find it odd that Rev. Wells, a "stayer" is asked to articulate the position of ACNA and am bothered that Rev Franklin is so dismissive toward those who have left TEC.
