What do you see as some of the biggest challenges facing Anglicans today?
Trading the our place in the essential story of faith for a place in the halls of bitterness, contempt and righteous indignation. We are more willing to be "right", and be utterly cut off from the people whom we are called to serve, than we are to serve.
What do you see as some of the biggest opportunities for Anglicans today?
This church, as it really can be, lives the faith so deeply. So many people have been cut off from communion with God and with all creation by those who miscast the message of Christ in language of dominance and control. Anglicanism, in its attention to the narrative of Christ's body through scipture and tradition, the community of sainthood, the transcendence in the sacraments and the sacredness of every moment, stands in a unique position to reach people who are desperately seeking true meaning in life.
