I don't know where you keep coming up with these wacky ideas, Joe.


Good idea!

Not to mention Paul's bit in ! Cor 6: "If you have such cases, why do you lay them before those who have no standing in the church? I say this to your shame. Can it be that there is no one among you wise enough to settle a dispute between the brothers, but brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers?" Shame, indeed?

I understand Niagara is considering going after the parish wardens personally. People will be asking Anglican dioceses to sign releases before they agree to serve as wardens next.


I agree it would be a good idea. Unfortunately, the dioceses have shown themselves to be control freaks, so it's probably a non-starter.


It would have to be sharing the value of the building rather than the building itself, since sharing the buildings - in Niagara at least - has proved impractical.

That being said, for my part, I wouldn't mind that solution too much; we (St. Hilda's in my case) would pay the diocese half the property value and keep the building for ministry. Of course, we don't have that much cash so it is academic, but that leads me to the next point.

The diocese of Niagara has no interest whatsoever in a negotiated settlement: it has consistently refused to talk to ANiC in spite of being compulsively addicted to "conversations" with everyone else in the galaxy. The diocese want this to be settled by the courts. I believe it is because they think they will win and they wish to squash - preferably destroy - the ANiC parishes that have defied them.
