Nathan Empsall writes a nice summary
Most of the news pouring out of the Lambeth Conference this week is disheartening. But I don’t want to be disheartened. I want to be happy. I want to sing. Thus, this post will start with a look at the happy news – American reaction to +Gene’s exclusion, and a bit from Brian McLaren – before descending to its inevitable depths – hard-line rumblings and Rowan Williams’ utter failure to lead. But of course, I continue to insist that the Communion is NOT headed towards schism.
