ANC news

This is the start of an interesting article posted at the ACN web site.

To do the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. That being the case, it would be hard for an outside observer to come to any other conclusion than that we conservative Anglicans are just a bit nuts.

For at least thirty years now, we have all been better at alienating each other than building a united Anglican future in North America. Today, there are multiple parallel reform movements working within the Episcopal Church, and more than 40 parallel, and sometimes competing, church groupings outside.

Understandable or not, it isn’t doing any of us any good.
end quote.

The gist of the article is to try and show that they are going to do things differently. But my guess is that they will end up like every other group that has broken off from the Episcopal Church.

The sad, and apparently unlearned lesson, is that when you are willing to leave to maintain purity, you will never end up leave, because there is always another purity issue just around the corner.

What is amazing to me is that these folks keep looking back to when this bygone era where everyone was white and well-off in our church and calling them "the good ole' days."

There is some kind of strange disconnect that i can't quite put my finger on with the network and those other so-called reform groups. I just don't get it...
