Well, something is happening on December 3rd related to the formation of a GAFCON recognized North American Province of Something. (See Living Church and Anglican Communion Network News)
Let us remember that the GAFCON Jerusalem Declaration, which has reappeared as a statement that will have to be signed by those of the Common Cause Partnership who want to be part of the GAFCON North American Province, includes this proposition:
"13. We reject the authority of those churches and leaders who have denied the orthodox faith in word or deed. We pray for them and call on them to repent and return to the Lord."
Now, just so everyone understands: Those who sign the Jerusalem Declaration will be pledging "to reject the authority of church and leaders who have denied the orthodox faith in word or dead." Who are those churches and leaders? Well, clearly the Provinces of The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada and at least all its bishops who have voted or acted in support of the inclusion of gay or lesbian persons by blessing their vocations to ordained ministry or to committed relationships.
That means that North America is, as far as the signers are concerned, without Episcopal leadership or Provincial governance. North America is an open mission field.
The Jerusalem Declaration has fourteen points. The headings of the thirteen others are, "we rejoice (three times), we believe, we uphold, we gladly proclaim, we recognize, we acknowledge, we gladly accept, we are mindful, we are committed, we celebrate. Only the one, Number 13 begins "we reject."
This single proposition, number 13, is what gives license to the GAFCON / Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans to carve up the map of TEC and ACoC to their liking.
Assuming this December 3rd Thingy goes anywhere, it will result in a new world wide Church that will call itself Anglican but which will not be Anglican at all. They will lead Anglicans astray and they will beguile others into thinking that they are indeed uniquely Anglican.
In this they will be wrong, and should they meet with some momentary success, it will be followed by their crash into conservative Calvinism on the one side and the lure of Rome on the other.
Meanwhile The Episcopal Church will continue to be broadly welcoming, although not as good at that as it should or could be. Likewise the Anglican Church of Canada will continue to be Anglicanism at its best. All of these troubles will lead to some reduction in membership, but in the long run the face of Christ that welcomes is better news than the face of Christ that rejects. I say that knowing that sometimes rejection is a way to greater love.
Just as sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, so sometimes rejection is just rejection.
