What is the Anglican Church of Canada all about?

Filed under: Anglican Church of Canada — David Jenkins @ 3:05 pm

The April edition of the Anglican Journal provides the clue. Here is a selection of headlines:

Falling in love with Mother Earth
The green wave is sweeping across many Anglican parishes in Canada.

Eco-spirit strong in New Westminster
Respond to one of the most urgent issues of our time: care for the earth. (What the hell is an “eco-spirit”?)

Begin with a simple cup of joe
If congregations want to take action on environmental and climate change issues, they can begin with a simple cup of joe.

You can go green at home, too!
Even if you can’t go off the power grid, you can buy your electricity from Bullfrog Power, which sources electricity from wind and hydro-electric facilities.

Small steps
Look to Greening Sacred Spaces

There you have it: The Anglican Church is getting into the eco-spirit of things by loving Mother Earth while drinking fair-trade coffee heated with Bullfrog Power all in a lush verdant sanctuary. I think I’m turning green; pass the sick-bag.



  1. All of this reminds me of druids and wickens. Most certainly does nothing to fill me with the Holy Spirit, nor motivate me to do any work for the Great Commission. Maybe the ACoC has become nothing more than druids and wickens?

  2. The Green Man has taken back his holy temples by stealth. Unfortunately the banks will soon sweep in and make parking lots of most of them.
