Truro, Baucum, Johnston and the Occupational Hazard of Anglicanism
From Positive Infinity:
My guess is that Baucum and his parishioners are beaten down on the one side by an Episcopal Church which manages one property victory after another (whether they can replicate this in SC is a whole different subject) and on the other by a mission field which has turned blue. They’re looking for relief, and coming from a tradition where the emphasis is on comity, the idea of burying the hatchet with the likes of Shannon Johnston is a major temptation.
Baucum–and indeed the ACNA in general–must realise, however, that seeking such accommodation defeats the reason for of the ACNA and the Anglican revolt. What was the point of secession, of the cost of litigation and for most of the losers relocation, when you’re just going to throw in the towel? And, to get back to the key issue, what’s the purpose of a church whose beliefs are little different from the world around it?
