Words not what they used to be in the post-Windsor Anglican Communion

There is a perceptive article by Andrew Carey doing the internet rounds, on how words are being twisted as part of the Windsor Process. You can read one posting of Carey's article here.

  1. It reminds me of reading "ecumenical documents", where the terms used have been picked with such care that both denominations can subscribe to the form of words. They can only do so, of course, because they mean different things by those words, so there is no agreement at all, other than agreement around a hollow form of words.

    To my mind, that highlights how diverse the Anglican Communion has become. A document intended to keep one denomination together (or a global affiliation of denominations) resembles similar documents designed to bring together totally different denominations.
