OUTSIDER

An anonymous personage, whom I gather is of the lay order, posted this evening suggesting that I am an “outsider” an that my comments in the essay ON POLITY are overboard. He or she (if you ae going to take issue with me do have the courage to name yourself) assures me that no such frightful comments would be posted by them about the Church of England.

I am not an outsider. I’m an Episcopal priest. I’ve lived in the US for forty years. I would think it quite splendid if a writer offered strident criticism about the contemporary CofE. One would hope that it would be fair, but hope springs eternal. If we can’t exercise and offer self-criticism we are in pretty bad shape. If I did not love the church so much I wouldn’t bother. Who ever you are do read my new blog published at Episcopal Majority. The link is below.
