An Alternative to the CofE?

I just posted this on the Anglican Catholic Blog. I believe that my Church is a credible alternative to the Church of England for all those who hold Catholic tradition and Anglican identity as being important to the Christian Faith and believe that these have been eroded by recent developments within the C of E.

In the comments, as Fr Anthony says, the ACC has the prospect of building upon the foundations, not by the polemical argumentation which is somewhat pass√©, but by seeking new ground to be as innovative as the CofE but holding tightly to what we believe. This comes through prayer and humility, learning from our mistakes, reflecting on how unfit we are for purpose and putting our entire trust in the Love of God which we desire to promulgate. The first resort is prayer, the second is honest toil. May the glorious majesty of the Lord our God be upon us: prosper thou the work of our hands upon us, O prosper thou our handywork!
