Sexuality conflict’s impact on Anglican mission: Background article

In 2009 the International Bulletin of Missionary Research published an article entitled “The Impact of the Sexuality Controversy on Mission: The Case of the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion.”  By then the broad parameters of how the conflict was affecting mission had become clear, and they have remained fairly stable since then – until yesterday’s decision of the Anglican Primates Meeting to sanction the Episcopal Church for three years.

The article is a helpful backgrounder to the situation of the Episcopal Church in relation to mission and the sexuality controversy.  The link is here.

The article expanded a talk I gave on the subject at the Overseas Ministries Study Center in New Haven at the invitation of then director Jonathan Bonk.
