Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams to Resign at End of Year – NYTimes.com.

He will certainly be missed by many. He was a man of peace who tried to do his best in a troubled time. Yet, it is not easy to be caught in the middle, between the stubborn extreme liberalism of American Episcopalians and the staunch ultra conservatism of African and Asian Anglicans (well funded in their actions by their counterparts in America), both groups being ready to sacrifice the unity of our broad church for the sake of their partisan views.

Anglicanism is going through a difficult period.

May God have mercy on us and give us a visionary orthodox leader.
