Well, it's all happening in merry/dreary England. The "conservative evangelicals" have laid their cards on table:
“A coalition of Evangelical and Charismatic Anglicans this week produced a covenant promoting ‘new, informal networks’ among churches that are unable to maintain fellowship with Anglicans with whom they disagree.The coalition includes Anglican Mainstream, Reform, the Church of England Evangelical Council, New Wine, and Crosslinks. It was said by Canon Chris Sugden of Anglican Mainstream to represent, in all, about 2000 congregations...”
The covenant itself has been signed by many members of the English clergy, who according to the ACL are quite well known and respected, including Wallace Benn, John Stott, Dick Lucas, William Taylor, David Petersen, and Richard Bewes.
PFJ has supported it:
"The Archbishop of Sydney, Dr Peter Jensen, has responded to news that leading evangelicals in the Church of England have met with the Archbishop of Canterbury and presented a Covenant promoting “new, informal networks” among churches that are unable to maintain fellowship with Anglicans with whom they disagree. Archbishop Jensen says he particularly supports local solutions to the present difficulties facing the Anglican Communion. As a result he can see value in local covenants that link like-minded Anglicans."
And local Sydney Anglicans have posted about it.
Fulcrum have replied to it, and NT Wright has made a bitterly sad response to the covenant.
Does anyone in the blogsphere have any insight to share on this matter?
