GAFCON: Where Everyone Raises Their Hands and Praises the Lord

David Virtue offers us a "photo gallery" of the end of the GAFCON meeting in Jerusalem, highlighting the final agreement the conservative Anglican gathering came to. But take a look at this photo after the signing: Pentecostals and Charismatics spend a lot of time emphasising how they raise their hands to praise the Lord--and how …

Message of the Africans: It’s Our Communion Now

The message that GAFCON sent out is clear to some: In a revolutionary move bordering on schismatic, African archbishops unilaterally announced Sunday in Jerusalem that they have taken over the leadership of the Anglican Church from England and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Southern Cone, Uganda and West Africa and, later, …
