The Church of England and it’s future…

Posted on: July 22, 2008

OK, this is just a thought I had whilst mowing the lawn (as you do) but, I feel now that unless there is a split in the AC along perhaps the GAFCON lines, then perhaps Dr Rowan Williams is not the man to “run” the CofE?

I think the time has come to change the structure of the Communion and make it more controlled, apply a disciplinary procedure that can be called in to play for such issues as may arise in the future.

Dr Williams stated in an interview that “the church has to be relevant to the society it finds itself in” but I disagree, the very ethos and nature of a TRUE church means that we are not RELEVANT in the popular cultural sense. We cannot change the message, nor the nature of the message but we can change the delivery. We are called to stand apart from society and to reach into it.

Anyway, thats me and my “lawn mowing” mind…
