There is something challenging about editorial independence. It reminds me of the teenager who declared to his parents that he was 'independent' and that he had the right to make his own decisions. He repeatedly proclaimed his independence until, finally, the teen's father said: "Okay, you're independent; now what?"It would be simplistic to suggest that the Journal is a mirror of Anglicanism in Canada. Mirrors simply reflect the superficial "body of Christ." The Journal tries to probe deeper. It attempts to capture the heartbeat, the very soul of the Anglican heart across this country. The Anglican Church of Canada has wide arms, embracing a wide range of theological perspectives with a wide range of cultural nuances. We want to help you hear those perspectives.
