It Only Takes One to Tango Says Rowan Williams

The Guardian reported on Rowan Williams' effort to keep unity in the Anglican Communion at the Lambeth Conference. The 230 boycotting bishops might be happy Rowan's diagnosis of the church's schism.

The Archbishop of Canterbury blamed liberal North American churches yesterday for causing turmoil in the Anglican communion by blessing same-sex unions and consecrating gay clergy as he attempted to chart a way out of the crisis that has been engulfing the church.

In a Pilate like move, Williams ended the session with a call. Who do you want released, Barabus (win by might) or Jesus (love for all)? Tuned to the missing 230, Rowan chose Barabus in his call for a moratorium on both practices. The Archbishop perils Christ's lived message in his efforts to save the union.
