Briefly, I am very pleased to hear this. I’ve become quite a fan of Rev. Ashenden. For one thing, he has a remarkable talent for being both soft-spoken and straight-speaking at the same time. Watch him on Anglican Unscripted or watch his own YouTube videos to get a taste of that.
The Christian Episcopal Church is definitely punching above their weight to bring Ashenden on!
And, in case any wonder, I think working both inside and outside the Church of England is appropriate now. There is still some excellent ministry going on in the CofE. But the Philip North affair revealed the Church of England cannot be trusted to provide faithful traditionalist bishops like North and Gavin Ashenden. And being an orthodox Anglican without those is problematic indeed.
