WANTED: A Conciliar gathering. The former Bishop of Rochester, the Rt. Rev. Michael Nazir-Ali told participants at Mere Anglican, a conference dedicated to a reformed, renewed orthodox Anglicanism within North America, that a church council of orthodox Anglican primates should be called to resolve the deep theological and ecclesiological tensions in the Communion.
Whatever is concluded should be binding on the Anglican Church, said the Pakistani-born convert from Islam, who is increasingly outspoken on a wide range of issues ranging from Islam, the decline of Christianity in England to the Culture Wars.
