Title: “Heterodoxy in the Rectory: The Blessing of Gay Spouses in the Church of England”
Guest: Matt Kennedy
Description: The Church of England’s recently decided to offer blessings to couples in gay marriages, and the move has roiled the worldwide Anglican Communion. The orthodox leaders of the Global South Fellowship of Anglican Churches (GSFA) have responded with a declaration that is nothing less than an ecclesiastical shot heard round the world. They have set forth a series of resolutions that effectively declare their independence from the heterodox Church of England.
Rev. Matt Kennedy is the Rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd in Binghampton, New York. He joins us on the program to share his own part in this controversy and to explain what this recent news means for the Anglican Communion.
