primates meeting news

One of the most interesting (and troubling) developments so far in Tanzania is Archbishop Akinola's flying one of his Nigerian archbishops to Tanzania to join him at the meeting. Why is this disturbing? Because it can only be read within the context of Rowan Williams' decision to have the Archbishop of York join him at the meeting, as well as in the context of Archbishop's Akinola's past statements about not needing to go through Canterbury to get to Jesus. This looks like a dangerous one-up-manship. Lent and Beyond has good analysis and prayer.

Keep praying for the primates.
