Smith, Sheldon Moody
October 1977
National Review;10/14/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 40, p1166
The article presents information on the establishment of the Anglican Church in North America by the Fellowship of Concerned Churchmen in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada in 1977. The church will have distinctly Anglican bishops. It will maintain the Book of Common Prayer in its present form. It is composed of orthodox Episcopalians of all stripes, high, low, and in-between. The opposition body, the Evangelical Catholic Mission, will continue to press for traditionalist theology and morals against increasingly heavy odds.
