I know I have not written much on the Anglican world recently on this blog, in many ways because I get my ‘fix’ on the AEC blog!
So, I had planned on saying something about the recent Primates communique, here. However, I see that this has been dissected with clarity in many places, such as here and here. A pithy summary of this document would be that it contains paragraphs of turgid Anglican prose with promises to talk lots more. And a seeming backing away from ACNA from the orthodox primates, as MCJ elaborates on here.
On the other hand, from here and other sources, we hear that the orthodox primates went away very pleased with the outcome.
So, the point of this post comes in the form of a question from one most puzzled. There appears to be a reality disconnect between what the primates are saying, and the actual document that they signed up to. Could somebody clarify?
