At the head? Jesus only!

"But emerging from the legacy of colonialism must mean a new co-operation of equals, not a simple reversal of power"

I just received from the Anglican Communion Office a response delivered by the Archbishop Rowan Williams on the GAFCON statement.
The phrase above represents a very appropriate comprehension on the central issue that is causing divisions and pain within the Communion. The
affirmation about not reversal of power is so perspicuous. I have no doubt that the basic motivation that allowed people to create alternatives networks accusing others to be not orthodox is specifically a dispute to stay at the head.
As a communion we don't need to demonstrate who has the control. The table where disciples seat is a place for humility and comprehensiveness. The table is not a place for intolerance.
The ABC's response will make those - who has an open vision on the Church's role - feel so comforted.
The true spiritual life is not based only in words or theologies, but in concrete actions and concern with those who are at the periphery.

No one has absolute right to define the truth for others. All of us, together, need to be humble in find the best for us in Jesus' life and will.
