The crisis confronting the the Anglican Communion is not necessarily a tragic moment of division. It is first of all an opportunity to discern what are the ways to respond to Christ's prayer to follow him faithfully that Christians may be one as he and the Father are one, that the world may believe (John 17:21).
Many have bridled at the primates’ challenge to the maverick Episcopal Church to be a team player. The primates’ attempt at discipline, it is objected, was both clumsy and authoritarian, pushing in the opposite direction of possibly prophetic witness.
