    When I saw the names:
    •The Most Revd David Chillingworth (Scotland)
    •The Most Revd Dr Katharine Jefferts Schori (The Episcopal Church)
    my heart sank.

    These two churches have leading the Anglican Communion away from “…the Faith once given…” in a very big way.

    Plus, +Schori (through he r various statements) has proven herself to be a theological light weight.

    And being primarily Scottish in heritage and family culture I find the Episcopal Church of Scotland to be a huge disappointment.

    Scotland is a nation mwith a powerful history of explicitly straight forward and powerful thinkers. The leadership of the Episcopal Church of Scotland is not led by such persons.

    But, what are these people actually going to DO?

    This last ACC meeting has accomplished even less than ACC-14 (which even the Archbishop of Canterbury at the time acknowledged to have been “a glorious failure”). They not only didn’t come up with any strategies to fix the problems in the Anglican Communion (most notably the deep divide between liberal and orthodox), they didn’t even acknowledge that such a problem exists. And this is even though some representatives refused to take communion with others right at the start of the meeting!

    After many days of huffing and puffing, they couldn’t even agree on a resolution condemning the persecution of Christians in Pakistan.

    Why does it matter who they elect to the ACC?

    1. Schori has a theology? Really? It’s news to me! Pardon my cynicism, but that woman has been an unmitigated disaster as the leader of a so-called “Church.” Not only that, but she’s perpetrated schism and heresy on a wide scale, and I am constantly amazed that the orthodox Anglican Communion primates tolerate her presence among them anywhere. She should be treated as persona non grata.
