I am sure many of you will have heard the sad news of the final death-knell of the Church of England, whose Synod voted yesterday to remove the final legal constraints in order to allow the ordination of female "bishops" within the next ten years.
This is the Church which nourished me spiritually and led me eventually to the riches of Holy Orthodoxy, and I grieve to see that Church drifting inexorably, helplessly and hopelessly away from the harbour of Orthodoxy.
Schism within the Church of England is now a sad certainty - as if there weren`t enough schisms within Christianity already.
Maybe this will be the impetus for more folk to explore Orthodoxy, and as Huw Raphael notes, may well kickstart the revival of the traditional Western Rite within Orthodoxy in the UK.
Ah well, God`s will be done.
