From Christian Concern-
Church leaders representing 40 million Anglican churchgoers met this week to discuss the “crisis” in the Anglican Church.
The three day meeting, organised by the Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans, brought 200 clergy and laity from 30 countries together in London to address what they criticised as the attempt to “turn Christianity merely into a movement for social betterment”.
They said it was clear that the leadership in England had failed to hold the 77 million-strong worldwide Anglican Communion together and suggested that the Archbishop of Canterbury should in future be replaced with an elected chair.
Archbishop Eliud Wabukala, leader of Kenya’s 13 million Anglicans and Chairman of the Primates Council of the Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans, gave the keynote address. He said:
“Some sections of the Anglican Communion have been echoing the words of the serpent; ‘has God really said…?’ And their strategy has been to continue this dialogue endlessly in order to wear down resistance while all the time pursuing their self determined mandate of radical inclusion.
