WHAT IS ANGLICANISM?
With the headlong rush of the Church of England into apostasy, the Anglican primates of the conservative Global South, where most Anglicans now live, have been talking about establishing a new center of Anglican unity in the southern hemisphere to replace Canterbury. For many reasons it has been suggested that the new Anglican center of unity be in Kenya, where the current president of the GAFCON Primates Council resides.
What is Anglicanism’s future? As Martin Thornton wrote in 1963, Anglicanism is “sane, wise, ancient, modern, sound and simple; with roots in the New Testament and the Fathers, and of noble pedigree; with its golden periods and its full quota of saints and doctors; never obtrusive, seldom in serious error, ever holding its essential place within the glorious diversity of Catholic Christendom” (English Spirituality, p. 14).
