Uncertain future.

Dear editor,

I prayed, "Dear God help us!" after reading the article entitled Church sanctions could have been worse: primate (, Feb. 25).

On the surface, our Canadian church's voluntary withdrawal from the global Anglican Consultative Council seems small--a gentle push out the door. But what does the refusal of a dozen archbishops to attend eucharist with our archbishop (and the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church in the United States) really tell us? When will the Final schism occur between Anglicans worldwide? Between Anglicans nationally even? Will it be after a future General Synod rejects tradition and Scripture in favour of same-sex blessings or same-sex marriage? Will it be after the Alpha course is banned for its traditional focus on Bible, sex, and marriage? The devil is somewhere, waiting patiently and smiling.
