One of the joys of General Convention is that people from across the spectrum of opinions in the church find themselves together on legislative committees where much of the hard lifting goes on. Canon Neil Michell and I served together on the World Mission Legislative Committee. While we often found ourselves looking at the same elephant from different angles, we at least identified that we were looking at an elephant. He was a joy to work with.
I gave some of my thinking on the state of things in Episcopal and Anglican land in my essay, "ACAWKI - The end of the Anglican Communion as We Know It.
Neil has written a very fine piece "Reflections on the Future of the Episcopal Church in Light of the Actions of the General Convention." It is very much worth the read. I particularly find his assessment of the cuts in the budget a fine parsing of the problem. He says the cuts may have been fairly distributed, but they were not strategic. Go there and read.
