The Archbishop of Canterbury recently gave an interview where he was quoted as saying:
"I think it might have helped a lot if I'd gone sooner to the United States when things began to get difficult about the ordination of gay bishops, and engaged more directly with the American House of Bishops," he said.
He went on: "I think the problem though, is that the demands of the communion, the administrative demands of the communion have grown, and are growing.
"I suspect it will be necessary, in the next 10 to 15 years, to think about how that load is spread; to think whether in addition to the Archbishop of Canterbury there needs to be some more presidential figure who can travel more readily."
In this week's Anglican Perspective, Canon Phil Ashey of the American Anglican Council looks at the Archbishop's diagnosis of the problems in the Anglican Communion and what the Bible says about how doctrinal issues should be dealt with.
Anglican Perspective is a weekly 2-minute teaching video produced by the American Anglican Council. Each week, the Rev. Canon Phil Ashey, AAC Chief Operating Officer, looks at current events from an orthodox, biblical Anglican perspective.
