The ABC explains Sydney Anglicanism... after broadcasting a night with Phillip Jensen

The ABC has provided a blurb to accompany the replay of the carols from St Andrew's Cathedral. The ABC explains that the carols were broadcast from a church, where simplicity, sobriety and measure were the markers and clerical vestments were put aside, and replaced with a business shirt and tie; the wearing of a jacket was too formal for National TV. The ABC sums up by saying religious imagery is not favoured in Sydney Anglicanism and to get a sense of some of the religious motivations of Sydney Anglicans, it is helpful to read Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion (1536).

Did that blurb read 1536? No wonder those Sydney Calvinists always fighting with everyone...they live in a time warp!

  1. It is good to read on the ABC website that Sydney "Anglicanism" upholds 'total depravity'. That sums up Jensenism nicely.
