September 25 2005 By virtueonline Episcopalianism in the USA - any cause for optimism in next decade?

The Episcopal Church of the USA (ECUSA) is a divided house, where dioceses are not in communion with others dioceses, where parishes look for flying bishops rather than the local, canonical one, and where there is open warfare over doctrinal and ethical matters. Outside the ECUSA there are many different jurisdictions, affiliations and groups of churches. One goes back to the 19th century (the REC) and some go back to the civil rights struggle (e.g.

September 24 2005 By virtueonline "It's both/and, not either/or," says Anglo-Catholic scientist

My own position, perhaps a typical Anglican fudge to be sure, but one which commends itself to me for what I regard as good reasons, is that, in the matter of infusion versus imputation, it is both/and rather than either/or. Yes, we remain sinners after Baptism, in which both righteousness is imputed and grace given, but throughout the Christian life we grow in holiness as grace is infused.

September 12 2005 By virtueonline Hurricanes and Mastery by Wilfred McClay

September 11 2005 By virtueonline Farewell, Church of England? - by Peter Mullen

Then the Bishop came on and told us that at the laughably misnamed riot called "The Peace" he didn't want us merely to shake hands but to "hug one another"-and not just to hug one another, but to put our arms on our neighbor's shoulders and say three times, "You are everlastingly loved."
