Dean Robert Munday of Nashotah House Seminary points out a potential disagreement between faithful Anglican leaders.
It comes down to this: are Anglicans guided by confession (statement of belief) or by councils (gatherings of Christian leaders)? The Jerusalem gathering issued a document that emphasizes confession, while Bishop Robert Duncan's opening remarks emphasized councils. (I have links to both of these in various posts below).
Dean Munday goes on to harmonize the two perspectives, seeing the confession as setting boundaries in which councils deliberate. I think he's right - and I think we need a succinct statement of this idea. Here's a first try:
Our confession guides our councils, our councils minister our confession.
Anyway, what do you think? How would you express the relationship of confession and council in Anglicanism?
