The Rev. Susan Russell has an excellent analysis of how the Anglican spin cycle works on her blog.
I think we’ve all had it happen: one minute the washer is happily turning dirty laundry into clean clothes and the next there’s the telltale thump-thump-thump-THUMP of the spin cycle spinning crooked. The only solution is to get up, lift the lid, rearrange the wet laundry and start over again.
Well, it happened to me today. Only it wasn’t the spin cycle on my washing machine — it was the spin cycle on the Anglican News Machine. One minute I was happily working at home, getting Holy Week texts in order and coming up with a Good Friday sermon title ahead of the noon-today-or-else deadline and the next I was getting calls and emails by the drove from reporters about the “U-Turn” the Episcopal Church was about to make on gay inclusion — thump, thump, thump, THUMP!
The only solution was to get up, “lift the lid” and check out what was spinning around in there.
