The heart of Anglicanism

Great post from Thunder Jones, on the eve of the General Convention of the Episcopal Church in the USA. I agree wholeheartedly with the formulation he quotes from Bishop William Sanders:

We share unity in the essentials of faith
We embrace diversity in the non-essentials of faith
We have charity in all

For you "emerging" folk who love the idea of "generous orthodoxy" (as do I) - sound familiar?

This more than anything else is why I love my Anglican tradition. May we be true to our heart as we enter into General Convention. Check out Thunder's post; it's brief and worth reading.
