Well, here it is the far side of the day and my earlier posting on The Anglican Theological Mare's Nest has only had a chance to get more and more untidy. This afternoon The Living Church has announced that Bishop John Rogers, of AMiA fame, is the interim dean. Dean Paul Zahl, you may remember, resigned for personal reasons just recently.
Bishop Rogers seems a fine fellow. He is, of course, also massively engaged in an incursion by another Province in the life of the Episcopal Church. He, like Bishop Minns, is not invited to Lambeth, and for the same reason: the promotion of splintering and schism by mucking about in other people's gardens. His boss, Archbishop Kolini, like Archbishop Akinola, is invited, although they may not come. At any event Bishop Roger's appointment to Trinity will further confuse matters. Dr. Noll of Uganda Christian University writes that he believes Trinity needs to become a seminary for Network and Common Cause Partners. Will this help? Who knows. There are better evangelical seminaries and there are more Anglican ones as well. So Bishop Rogers will have his hands full.
Perhaps AMiA is not losing a bishop but gaining a Seminary. Who knows?
