What really happened at the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC 17)? by Andrew Atherstone, Psephizo: “there was something for everyone, both gospel proclamation and social justice, with a weighting towards the latter. It was an excellent week for building better cohesion in the Anglican world, and forming new friendships…But ACC-17 also raises a number of significant questions about the future of Anglicanism.”

GAFCON and ACC-17: a response to Andrew Atherstone, by Stephen Noll, Contending Anglican. Andrew Atherstone discusses the status of ACNA without mentioning the role of Gafcon. This won’t do….There will be no way, Andrew, for the Archbishop of Canterbury to convene a task group to deal with ACNA without dealing with Gafcon, and there will be no way to have a fruitful dialogue with Gafcon without backing up to Lambeth 1998 and the “consequences” that flowed from it. And such a turnaround by Canterbury has been repeatedly refused.
