Authentic Anglicanism

One of the most important themes of this Blog is that faith is an act of imagination. While systematizing what we believe or writing tracts on spiritual themes might serve to educate our imaginations, they are not in themselves any kind of substitute for that Truth that is only God's to give.

God's sled dog is highly unhappy at attempts to try and turn the Anglican Communion into a magisterial and ideological faith, complete with in-groups and the anathematized. A good musher works with the gift of her dog's animal nature; she does not beat living flesh into submission.

As a service to the faithful, I've posted a beautiful and nuanced response to the Draft Anglican Covenant from Frank Turner, the John Hay Whitney Professor of History at Yale University and a brilliant friend of the Episcopal Church. Please read, mark, learn and inwardly digest!
