from Sunherald:

"Robinson said it pained him deeply to be excluded in 2008 from a gathering of Anglican bishops and clergy that occurs every 10 years in England, known as the Lambeth Conference. He said it was the first time since 1867 that a bishop had not been invited ..."

... and for good reason.

If he advocated the Gospel instead of equality, he would do more good. But TEC has become a political advocacy forum instead of a home for biblical teaching. Hence the strife and losses from the schismatic leaders. The sad part is the leaders from K J-S on down see themselves as the solution instead of the problem.

If Yeshua is not resurrected within and among ourselves, and the Gospel is not integrated and applied in our lives, what's the point?

You are precisely right. That IS the whole point of the Eucharist. By partaking, remembering and taking up and carrying our own "Cross," we bring His Life and Principle into the world.

Thank you for the reminder.

We have a very different Yeshuology and soteriology, my friend. We don't acknowledge the "eucharist" at all, and the path of the "cross" is an invitation to only a few, not the many.

You may not acknowledge the "eucharist." But, you Do recognize His commitment to his friends and fellow Wayfarers.

I have read and heard this singularity in your words.

The Spirit knows why these invitations are given and the Angels stand reasdy to bear one or another up so that the call can be heard. Even so, when I look back upon His ministry, I find His willingness to extend his Blessing to all who would willingly receive it, and there have been and are many.

I continue to work on His behalf.

Perhaps. And this would make for an interesting discussion in another venue, certainly.
