Tony Clavier on the limits of Autonomy

Centrists / General Convention / Religion

Fr. Clavier has written a thoughtful essay on the real issue that we are asked to consider at General Convention, and also what autonomy has meant historically within the Anglican Communion. Get thee over there and read…

“I thoroughly agree that the issue before our General Convention next week and before the Anglican Communion is not the matter of human sexuality. Those who fear the strengthening of our ‘bonds of affection’ and some slight diminution of provincial authority are on target. The question before us all is not new. Indeed it has been with us since the newly formed Episcopal Church joined the Irish, Scottish and English provinces in what would become an Anglican Communion. Just how autonomous is an autonomous church?”
