What Just Happened?
Perhaps you've heard the news that Anglicans from around the world, including a delegation not only from the ACNA, but from the Dioceses of the Western Gulf Coast, got together in Rwanda last week to tackle the stray from orthodoxy that is being seen throughout Christendom, including a small minority of churches within the Anglican Communion.
In what is being called the most significant ecclesial intervention since the English Reformation, the statement that came out of that gathering, known as the Kigali Commitment, rejects the authority of the Archbishop of Canterbury as primus inter pares or "first among equals" and calls on him, the Church of England and all other provinces within Anglicanism, including the Episcopal Church in America, to repent of any heretical teachings on marriage and sexuality that clearly reject the authority of Holy Scripture.
