Lambeth ’08 - To Go or Not to Go?

There’s been some discussion of late on the question of whether orthodox Anglican bishops should attend this year’s Lambeth Conference. Archbishop Gregory Venables has been much involved in said discussion, namely here and here. The latter is a remarkable thread indeed.

My thoughts?

1. Any strong Lambeth resolutions that put apostasy in its place have been and will be subverted by the current occupant of the chair of Canterbury.

2. A key policy of said occupant has been to string along the orthodox enough to get everybody to Lambeth. His subterfuge should neither be rewarded nor allowed to succeed.

Therefore, I reluctantly conclude the best course is not to attend Lambeth.
