The Problem, said the White Rabbit, is that the World, Our good ol' Anglican World, is broken. There is no use crying over it as if it were spilt milk. It is broken. The House of Bishops knew something was wrong. That was a big help. The Anglican Communion is not in good shape. The question is does it have to stay that way?
Here it is, The Broken Anglican World.
Building bridges is such a patch job, but there it is, it has to be done and we all have to do our part. The future of the Anglican Communion will be as messy as its past. We should not be surprised. After all, tidy is not the Anglican Communion's middle name.
The Bishops at their meeting also helped point a way to keep on keeping on, as they say, doing the Lord's work. Here is a bit of what that keeping on might look like. (Apologies to Dave Walker, of cartoon church,who can actually draw and is clever and did a better globe than this. Still, this one is in color!)
