When Four Churches closed and became Grace Church there was something more than mere survival in it. There was the vision to rebuild a new Anglicanism that would not shrink as the four expressions of the old way had. But to let the new thing arise we have to let the old ways die. Easy to say, but how we struggle against it.
The Architect of Anglicanism, Thomas Cranmer, and the teachings of Jesus as he faced his death, have much to teach us.
