My opinion on the Archbishop of Canterbury's Pentecost, um, message

Invite everyone to the eucharist. Those who come and share are Anglicans in communion. Those who don't or won't are something else. That should settle the property disagreements too.

Imagine all the time, energy, paper, ink, and cyberspace that could be saved if they would just settle on this. FWIW, you've got my vote.

I've been saying it for years but, so far, nobody is listening. The arch conservative in our parish and I hug every Sunday he shows up. The clergy are the problem.

So when are you starting the FB fan group of this statement? (big grin)

PseudoPiskie said...

Not, Kirke.

The Anglican Communion has become either a pissing contest or a dick contest. Either way it is a big competition for power among primarily male clergy. "My interpretation is correct" is analogous to "Mine is better" IMNSHO.

Yeah...I like this too.

Short, simple, direct, to the point, right. Thank you.

Touché.

Makes more sense than the idiot "covenant" and most of the other touchstones I I have seen.

FWIW

I would appoint you ABC in a heartbeat... except I like you, so I won't.

I also believe that what you describe is the reality and the rest is all illusion.

PseudoPiskie said...

Whew! Paul, I have no interest in being Senior Warden, let alone being ordained.

Found you through "Inch at a Time" (also on Blogger) -- and *YES.*

We're one family because we come to one table. Anyone who'll show up to dinner is family; anyone who decides to come later -- even at the eleventh hour -- is family too.

Love the kitten! Make it the ABC...

Which feline, Gören? 7 have taken up residence in my neighborhood. PuddyTat would not take the responsibility but she would rule anyhow. She is the matriarch and the others know it.

whiteycat said...

Right on, Pseudo! Tell it like it is!

Short, simple, direct, to the point, right.

Which demonstrates it will never be church politics or officially good theology.

PseudoPiskie said...

Seems to me to be genuinely Anglican however.

Allie said...

Sounds 'bout right, Shelley. Well said. Twould be interesting to get that into the canons
