I’m a 57 year old priest (ordained for 25 years), striving to be faithful to the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church within the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (aka TheEpiscopalChurch). I believe ancient Anglicanism is the true and viable expression of western Orthodox Christianity.
Two quotes/and thus my concern:
1) “The first and burning question is, naturally, whether the Anglican Communion in anything like its present form can survive at all.” Anglican Bishop Stephen Neill, Anglicanism, Fourth Edition, Oxford University Press, New York, 1977, p. 388.
2) …where will I ever be able to say “I die in the Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Faith, professed by the whole Church, before the disunion of East and West; and, more particularly, in the Communion of the Church of England, as it stands distinguished from both Papal and Protestant innovation, and adheres to the Doctrine of the Cross”? [Thomas Ken, Bishop of Bath & Wells; Non-Juror (1637-1711)]
