    Heaven forbid that anyone from the ACNA should be asked to participate. Goodness, no! “Polity,” you know!

    Good point Cennydd.

    ACNA’s best answer is to keep planting churches and growing them, as it has been doing.

    Such activity is despised by those who worship power, many of whom seem to be in TEC. But it has mighty effects in the long run – there may well come a time when TEC wants to make overtures for peace and co-operation, but finds that it has become irrelevant.

    If TEC’s membership continues its nosedive at the present rate, it won’t be long, will it? That irrelevancy is growing by the week, it seems.
