We're still busy grabbing all the news, spin, analysis, and commentary regarding yesterday's statement by the worldwide Anglican leaders—not to mention wrapping up all the stories about Pope John Paul II's 25th anniversary, the opposition to a U.S. general's Christian views, and many other stories. In the next several hours, we'll keep compiling and synthesizing (and waiting for our own reporter to file from London). In the meantime, read comments from Christianity Today executive editor J.I. Packer and associate editor Douglas LeBlanc. If that's not enough, here's three dozen wrapups of yesterday's Anglican events, mostly from the mainstream media. (The truly gluttonous should also revisit Wednesday's Weblog, "Where Else to Go for News and Analysis of the Anglican Primates' Meeting.")
