Potential Anglican schism? About time!

Adoption of gay blessings would lead to the removal of Welby as leader of the Anglican world — warn Global South archbishops:

IF the General Synod of the Church of England affirms the House of Bishops’ recommendations to ‘Bless’ Same Sex Marriage, or Civil Partnerships, the Church of England will be inviolation of the “clear and canonical teaching of the Bible”, and it will lead to “impaired communion with many provinces of the Anglican Communion”.

The role of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, as a “moral leader, and a figure of unity within the Communion” will also be “severely jeopardised”. So says the Global South Fellowship of Anglican Churches (GSFA) which covers around 75% of Anglicans across the globe, ahead of the Synod’s London meetings, February 6-9.

The House of Bishops’ Response to the six-year Living in Love and Faith ‘listening’ process says lawyers have advised them that the official Doctrine of Marriage would remain, despite the Church, from now on “joyfully welcoming and recognising permanent, stable same sex relationships” through services and prayers of blessing.

The Most Reverend Justin Badi, Primate of South Sudan, and Chairman of the GSFA responded, saying: “What the English bishops are recommending constitutes unfaithfulness to the God who has spoken through His written word.  Their Response belies the loss of confidence by the bishops in the authority and clarity of the Bible as we have received it. They are re-writing God’s law for His creation; laws that are re-affirmed by Christ in the Gospel accounts.”

Last summer, at the Lambeth Conference in Canterbury, the GSFA sounded a global call to re-affirm ‘Lambeth 1.10’ (the Anglican Communion’s official teaching that the only place for sexual intimacy is marriage between one man and one woman for life, and specifically rules out blessing of same sex relationships).  Archbishop Badi says the bishops’ proposals are “in clear contravention of Lambeth 1.10” , and “will lead to consequences for the Communion if the General Synod affirms.  We therefore call on Synod to reject the bishops’ proposals on blessing same sex unions.”

Gen Z not afraid to quit, change jobs

Who can blame them?

Gen Zers don’t share older generations’ hang-ups about “job-hopping”, according to a new study by management consulting firm Oliver Wyman.

They’re happy to ditch unfulfilling jobs that don’t offer the perks they want — and are always on the lookout for something better. Indeed, 70% of Gen Zers who say they’re “loyal” to their employers are either actively or passively seeking a new job, the research found.

Oliver Wyman surveyed 10,000 Gen Zers aged 18 to 25 in the US and the UK in an attempt to analyze how “the largest and most disruptive generation ever” will affect long-established business practices.

People born between 1997 and 2012, often called Gen Z, came of age during the pandemic. Having lost much of their youth to COVID-19, they’re seeking a sustainable work-life balance, and are not prepared to sacrifice leisure time to climb the corporate ladder, according to the research.

More than previous generations, they’re even prepared to jump ship without a backup plan, the survey found.

Gen Z views work in “a more transactional manner” than previous generations, and has a “lengthy list of demands,” per Oliver Wyman’s study. In particular, they want jobs that include benefits such as comprehensive healthcare coverage and mental health support, as well as institutional transparency.

They’re also increasingly demanding flexibility — and they’re prepared to quit if they don’t get it. Many of them started working during the pandemic, when most offices were shuttered, so have “no interest in soul-sucking commutes,” respondents said.

According to Oliver Wyman’s poll, 85% of Gen Zers prefer a hybrid or remote work pattern.

Corporations frequently demand absolute loyalty, but don’t reciprocate.

Why shouldn’t Gen Z or any other generations be more out for themselves, in turn?
