Appreciation given for Anglican ideas

Pursuing true gender equality is a very positive step for church

Re: Anglicans mull new direction on marriage (News, Mar. 15)

My appreciation goes out to my friends and colleagues in the Anglican church for embracing greater gender equality.

So what if it has been hesitant and slow to materialize; it’s happening.

Change inside all institutional religions comes at ‘glacial’ speed, with lots of excruciating pain and misery thrown up for some who resist.

Nevertheless, when it happens we all can breath our gratitude.

Critics are legion and will always find things to point out and decry what has taken place, but since we are dealing with humans, we never will get it perfect.

When “shift happens” we can all rejoice. I toast my brothers and sisters in Christ. Well done.
