Last Signal to the Carpathia

Paul F. M. Zahl

The address seeks to anchor in theology the traditionalist response to the actions of the 2003 General Convention of the Episcopal Church. It also makes a plea to the "winners" of that Convention. The traditional response, so anchored, faults the high anthropology as well as the low Christology of what the author sees as the "gay lobby's" argument. The address draws out further Trinitarian implications, and then focuses on Alternative Episcopal Oversight (AEO) as the formal plea of traditional clergy and parishes, while stressing the principle of graceful love as the material plea of such clergy and parishes. If the "victors" will embody the Christ-hymn of Philippians 2:1-11, the anger and defensiveness of the "losers" will decrease.
