CANA spreads it’s wings

This just dropped into my inbox:

Note to media: The AAC is releasing the following press release in response to numerous inquiries received over the past several weeks.

The Rev. Canon David C. Anderson, President and CEO of the American Anglican Council, recently announced that he has transferred his canonical residency from The Episcopal Church (TEC) of the United States to the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA), the U.S. missionary branch of the Anglican Church of Nigeria. The switch, which places Canon Anderson under the oversight of Bishop Martyn Minns, was made Nov. 1, 2006.

I refer the honourable readers to the reply I gave some days ago:

Do you see where I’m going with this? CANA is the beginning of the end for TEC, and they know it. It is the rump, but seeded and growing rump, of a movement that will provide a framework for orthodox bishops and ecclesiastical structures to be put in place in the USA where the current bishops and structures have apostatised. While some TEC Dioceses will join the new orthodox framework as a whole, in other places parishes will need to be transferred into the emerging, Communion recognised, structures in order to maintain Episcopal polity.

  1. It often seems to the lay church member that the heirachy of the Church of England has a different viewpoint and faith to the majority of its membership.

    Could such a solution also operate in England, so that traditional and evangelical churches are not forced to support and prop up the liberal wing of the church ?

    Just asking as I’ve been happy with the Anglican churches I’ve been a member of – but am most dissatisfied with the leadership from many Bishops and the current archbishop of Canterbury.

  2. I don’t think we’re quite in the place where the USA is at the moment, though if there is a removal of TEC from the Anglican Communion as a whole, it could have repercussions here that would force a struggle for the soul of the Church of England. I guess we sit, pray, and wait.
