"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Canon Harmon appears to have it right

This post from Canon Kendall Harmon appears to be on the mark about the primates meeting just concluded. While many of us hoped for swifter action, we finally have a definite time frame for what must happen and when now.

My own metaphor for what the meeting laid out is this: there is in effect a "trial separation with counseling" from today forward. The "drop dead" date for ECUSA repentence is Lambeth 2008. After that, the "divorce" will be finalized. We shall see.

You might want to share these thoughts on Sunday at A.F. Maybe you can have the kids sit in as well.
