So the question is, what will Bishop Schori face if she shows up for the Primates Meeting later this month?
Boycotting is another political act. Do we assume that every single primate is in their position because of God's calling - if He didn't want them there, He'd take them out. He is certainly capable. But He hasn't. Why is that? Who are we really mad at - the leadership or God? Could it be that God has something to teach us all? All of us? Perhaps we should refrain from engaging in more political acts (and frankly we're up to our eyeballs in these grandiose theatrics), and instead just show up. It's not easy to show up, but that's what leadership is about - showing up when it's hard.
It is important to show up, especially after slap-in-your-face political (and make mistake about it, it is political) theatrics such as this communion-tearing event in Cambridge. To not show up gives this political act power it does not deserve. These actions in Cambridge are of a spoiled child not getting their way (and isn't that interesting - in fact, this looks far more like a fundraising event complete with iconic photographs and press coverage than a nice family wedding). Let us not respond in a similar way, with our own well-intentioned but still at the end of the day political theatrics. The time of boycotting is over - it is not the time to run and hide, but stand up and be counted.
God didn't call bishops - primates even - to sit at home with their arms folded, but to stand up and lead. And at the end of the day, what will matter most is what the Lord says in the midst of those gathered, for He always always always shows up.
