As the Anglican World Turns

From Huffington-

While its viewership won't come close to that other famous British drama "Downton Abbey," we are about to begin a new season of the real life soap opera we've come to think of "As the Anglican World Turns."

The new season is being launched with the January 11-16 meeting of the Anglican Primates - an unfortunate term for the heads of the 38 autonomous churches that make up the Anglican Communion. The Archbishop of Canterbury has called the meeting to bring together leaders from around the world-wide communion to prayerfully consider critical issues including religiously motivated violence, the protection of children and vulnerable adults, the environment, and human sexuality.

And therein -- as they say - lies the rub.
