[Anglican Communion News Service] The Church of England has confirmed the membership of its new Bishops’ Reflection Group which has been established to help the church’s bishops as they continue to reflect on issues relating to human sexuality. The group was established by the archbishops of Canterbury and York following discussions at last week’s meeting of the church’s College of Bishops.

    Thanks for making ENS available to people in the “pews.”

    And I have a question.

    I’m wondering why you can’t link directly to the article at http://www.anglicannews.org/news/2016/09/c-of-e-names-sexuality-reflection-group-members.aspx
    rather than requiring us to click the link about to get there. (This need to click twice happens on every non-ENS story.)

    Thanks.

  2. Oh, seriously, Church of England. We’re here, we’re queer, deal with us! We are part and parcel of “All God’s Children,” and Jesus Christ, our mutual Saviour, would not have even blinked to have us among his followers, in the Jesus Movement that Michael Curry speaks so eloquently of. Even Pope Francis said, to his adherents: “Who am I to judge?” Jesus the Christ came to minister to the outcasts, the left-behinds, in his society, in his Judaic/Hebraic world. That is the radical message that he brought to the world. And you, wise and studied Churchwise Folks, can you afford to do less than that? To leave aside the message that Christ Jesus brought to the Gentiles? This is not a simplified Christianity-Light theology! Save that for our 19th Century mission converts in the farthest reaches of the world. They will eventually come to realize that the central message of salvation and reconciliation that they were brought is a liberating theology, and continues to evolve as life evolves, and that The New Covenant applies to all of us, gay and straight alike!
