Rebuilding Anglicanism: A Way Forward

While I do not agree with using the "revised" services suggested in this article or using the sacraments as an evangelistic tool, the rest of this article is spot on.  I think baptizing or performing marriages for the unconverted leads them to the false conclusion that they are in right standing with God.  It needs to be made clear that a "Christian" baptism and a "Christian" marriage requires active membership in the local congregation and a study of God's Word.
