First Things: Comment on Lambeth

First Things is a conservative Journal on Christianity. Here is a frank analysis of what Lambeth needs to do and the theological differences inherent in the conference. It reads in part -

"As Rowan Williams recently put it, the crisis is such that Anglicans are no longer sure that they can recognize each others’ ministries, or even that they are speaking the same language of faith. If the bishops at Lambeth in 2008 are unable to state that such incoherence cannot be the basis of Anglicanism, then the Communion’s devolution will continue–and the expansion of this sort of doctrinal free-for-all is precisely what many liberal bishops (particularly those from North America) hope to see."
