While I certainly do not speak for all young Anglicans, I believe that I am not alone. A number of my colleagues and friends have expressed openness to — and even interest in — cross-jurisdictional friendship and collaboration.

The organizers of Lambeth 2020 have many difficult matters to tackle. But the gross disparity between the number of worshipers in the different dioceses is a question that needs to be faced. As things stand, the net result is continuing to privilege the voices of small numbers of white Westerners while side-lining swaths of the most missional and poorest Christians in the Anglican Communion.
