Special Seminar:
Dispersed Authority


Dispersed Authority: Dispersed to the Four Winds
The Question of Authority in the Anglican Communion

We are not just a federation of independent churches. We call ourselves a Communion. That means we have to struggle to reach unity of heart and mind. The problem for Anglicans at the universal level is the integration of leadership to achieve coherent thought. Anglicans are hesitant to pontificate: we are content to live with ambiguity – as we might experience God's transcendence in awe and wonder.

These are some of the thoughts of Archbishop Peter Carnley, taken from his previous discussions of these issues. Archbishop Carnley is well-known for public consideration of the questions of leadership and authority, both in the Church and in the wider world. These questions, and other subjects, will be discussed in a stimulating and timely seminar; presented as a special event, outside the normal program of the Institute for Spiritual Studies. There will be an opportunity for questions during the evening.
