As I’ve said before, there are plenty of anglican news blogs out there, and somehow I doubt you need another one. Rather, if I have anything to offer, it would be to try and present a prophetic perspective.
So what would be that perspective right now? Simply, to be at peace. There is One far greater than us, and all things are unfolding to His plan. Indeed our anglican troubles are just one of the skirmishes of a far greater war. If anything, I think He would have us take our eyes of the immediacy of the moment, look beyond analysing the details, emotions and intents of every paragraph issued by every group and see Him – the author and perfector of our faith.
And then, in repentance and full humility, acknowledging the part we have played in the mess that now exists, kneel at His feet, gaze on Him, and wait the unfolding of His plan. And, as He prompts for action – move, but only move by following in His footsteps.
You see, if we get what we want – a new anglican orthodoxy – but we take with us all our own sins, all our unrepentant attitudes then we’ll arrive in the ‘promised land’ – and find that it is not what our hearts have truly desired.
God has something infinitely better in store for us than merely ‘getting things back to rights again’ – if only we would have eyes to see and hearts to follow. May He give us that vision.
