GAFCON: The end is not nigh

[] 20 Jun 2008--The theological resource book for the Global Anglican Future conference has been launched at a news conference in Jerusalem.

The book has been released for discussion at the conference and has already attracted media attention around the world.

A report in Britain’s Telegraph newspaper referring to the book was headlined Hardline bishops declare Anglican split and went on to declare that they had “formally declared an end to the Anglican communion”.

That was firmly rejected by one of the GAFCON leaders, Sydney Archbishop Peter Jensen, who referred to the actions in North America by churches in defiance of the Lambeth decisions of 1998 on homosexuality.
