On March 22, 2019, the Rt. Rev. Dr. George R. Sumner, Episcopal Bishop of Dallas, led a community conversation on the history, development, and nature of Anglicanism, and especially how they affect Anglicanism’s importance in the 21st century:

“If you’ve taken a seminary Anglicanism course, you know that the question [of Anglican identity] may seem tired out: fair enough. It will prove worthwhile only if we can show that the answer to Anglican identity also addresses the question of being a Christian in the postmodern era.”

Bp. Sumner’s address was entitled “Anglicanism Defined: Three Crises,” and included an analysis of the ways Anglican identity has been forged in and by the Reformation, modernism, and Global South Anglicanism.

Other guests in the conversation included the Rev. Dr. Matt Burdette, Seth Oldham, and the Very Rev. Rob Price. Discussion was moderated by Dr. Christopher Wells.
