A Polity of Persuasion
A Polity of Persuasion0 0 5 Forfatter: Jeffrey W. Driver
Jeffrey Driver argues that there is more at stake in such an exercise than Anglican unity. In an ever-shrinking, pluralist, and conflicted world, where oneness is often forced by dominance, the People of God are called to model something different. The injunction of Jesus, it is not so among you, challenged his followers to use power and live in community in a way that contrasted with what occurred among the Gentiles (Mark 10:41-45).
This is why the sometimes tedious debates about authority and structure in the Anglican Communion could actually matter--because they might have something to say about being human in community, about sharing power and coexisting, about living interdependently on a tiny and increasingly stressed planet. The Anglican experiment in dispersed authority, for all its grief, could be a powerful gift.
