Is there some way to sort out these varying approaches, perhaps as a contribution to the healing of divisions among Episcopalians and Anglicans more broadly, thence perhaps as a service to the one Church of Christ?
Whatever happens in one part of the Anglican Communion, will have an impact on the whole Communion. The preservation of the historic teaching on an important doctrine and the defiant response to it will no doubt send a confusing message to the Communion. The Canadian Church has yet to find a way of preserving that teaching in an ordered way and still extending a pastoral heart to those who struggle. Such is the reality of God’s mission in the world.
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. It would be naïve to suggest that such activity is a simple road to reunification; but it would be jaded to deny that it could be a starting point.
