I've not had much time to keep up with the Anglican world. Work keeps me quite busy planning liturgies, teaching...One thing I can say to Anglicans contemplating conversion (and it is a conversion, as I found in my own swimming the Tiber), the depth that one gains in coming into full communion with The One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church cannot be imagined until one is in it, living and practicing the Faith without worries of what part of the church will be degraded next. The confidence upon the Rock of the Church (yes, even with the misguided Catholics-in-name-only) frees you to learn to love God and learn happiness and grow in holiness.

Come on in, the water is fine!
