Another Split in Anglican Church

Not good to have more splits between Christians.

Former Episcopalian leaders from across North America gathered in Bedford, Texas on Monday to launch the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), described as an “alternative” to the U.S. Episcopal Church within the Anglican Communion.

The new denomination claims 100,000 members from several varieties of Anglican spirituality described as evangelical, charismatic or catholic. A union of eight groups, it is seeking recognition as part of the Anglican Communion.

Just another reason I am grateful to be apart of the Church Christ established that would always be one.

'Not good to have more splits between Christians'

I have to disagree in this case. I think this is the kind of split that will lead to more unity later. Or sooner than later. In any case, this ACNA group can only be a much stronger ally in the culture war than the Episcopalian Church will be. The EC is more likely to just roll over and succumb to the world, do you doubt it?
