Ndugane's understanding

Those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it. In my last post I examined the wars that have resulted from religious conflicts and likened them to the current affliction within our Anglican Communion. Now comes this for clarity. Archbishop Ndungane's speech at the Bishop's Forum in South Africa has an excellent history of the polity of the Anglican Communion and how it has and is changing. I commend this article for a better understanding of what is happening with the current demands of the Communique and the draft of the Covenant.

Thank you for sharing Archbishop Ndungane's impressive analysis. I will also post a link it and credit you on my blog at http://creativeadvance.blogspot.com. It would be nice if Archbishop Ndungane's developmental, forward-looking view of the Anglican Communion would prevail among the primates. But as he experienced at Dar es Salaam, that seems unlikely. His temperate, hopeful words express the best of the Anglican Communion--and the magnitude of what will be lost if Peter Akinola gets his way.
