That was my reaction to the announcement that the "Common Cause" partners had launched yet-another plan to reinvent Anglicanism. I suppose I should care more about what they're doing but I just can't manage a whole lot of interest.
I did manage a little amusement when I checked in on the blogs after a 24 hour hiatus (rumor has it they're called "days off" and some people actually take them on a regular basis: IMAGINE!)
Anyway, I had left a comment over at titusonenine on the Common Cause statement which said simply, "Yawn." And boy howdy a lot of people had a lot to say about that! Almost as much as they did about who has the Trinity figured out and who doesn't. Go figure.
We're really supposed to get excited about the "breaking news" that a bunch of malcontent bishops and their neo-con followers are trying to figure out a way to have their sola scriptura cake and keep their Anglican cassocks, too? Episcopal Synod. Episcopalians United. Forward in Faith. ACC. CANA. AMiA. And now "Common Cause."
Forgive those of us who have been at this awhile if we greet this particular "breaking news" with a big old yawn. And then let us have a day off to rest up before we get back to work. Because if I'm clear about anything I'm clear there is a heap of work to do to move this church from where it "is" (which our bishops keep telling us they were "clear" about in their Response last week) to where God is calling it to be.
