Dear Brothers and Sisters,

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND is fast reaching a tipping point as it races headlong towards the sexual cliff in its desire to abandon marriage solely between a man and a woman and adopt same-sex marriage rites in parishes and dioceses across the country that wish to perform them.

Replacement theory is a deceitful tool used by generations of fear-mongering, power-seeking politicians of every kind. Study history! 100s of examples. Hitler used it to delude people into becoming Nazis. Haman used it to steal political power. (Read book of Esther) It's not new. -- Rick Warren

CofE: We remain a fairly top-heavy Church with an annual budget of over $50 million. There was a move to work towards addressing this and a close vote followed. Sadly, the amendment to work toward shrinking our budget for future years did not pass, but I hope our voice was heard. We cannot continue to budget for the Church we were 20 years ago. And while we do good things with the money, perhaps more good things could also be done if that money stayed at the diocesan and parish level.

Unity, it seemed, was more important than truth and equally elusive. "Truth and unity must be held together, but church history also says that this sometimes takes a very long time to reach a point where different teaching is rejected or received," said Justin Welby.

But the truth he sought and pushed onto his fellow bishops was "plural truths", truths that can and should be held together till, presumably, God decides which set of truths He alone would accept and not we ourselves.

CANTERBURY: The weather here is dry and humid; the state of the Anglican Communion is equally dry and spiritually humid.

It is apparent to this writer that the liberals are doing their best to control the narrative here. All the press conferences are run by liberals from the West with token appearances from carefully selected Global South bishops. Nothing is left to chance. Welby is in complete control and his minions do his bidding.

Protestant identity is evaporating before our eyes. Does it matter? It does to me. While there is great diversity among Protestants, being Protestant means holding to the gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith alone and to the Bible as authoritative over extra-biblical traditions. --- Roger E.

Instead, deputies and bishops focused on fast tracking Bishop Barbara Harris (Massachusetts suffragan) to Episcopal sainthood; championed unrestricted access to abortion; demoted a noted Episcopal theologian, cancelling him and putting him out with the trash; created a virtual Prayer Book to house the growing "authorized" liturgies for trial and experimental usage; dealt with The Episcopal Church's supposed "legacy of racism;" focused on increasing the church's multilingual, multilinguistic,
