Much of this site is dedicated to educating visitors about what
we believe to be the essential genius of Anglicanism and the
potential negative consequences of adopting the Anglican Covenant
now before Anglican churches.
On this page, we offer resources
you can use to further this educational work in your own church,
as well as items that don’t fit comfortably elsewhere on our
site. We encourage you to
browse through what we offer here
and consider how you can use this material in your home parishes,
dioceses, and churches.
Feel free to suggest additional
material that can be posted here and used by others in the campaign
to prevent the radical re-definition of Anglicanism.
Logos & Logo Merchandise
Our No Anglican Covenant logos may
be used by those opposed to the Anglican Covenant. Information
concerning its use and samples of the logos in various sizes
can be found here. Additionally, Lionel
Deimel, designer of the original logo, offers a variety of merchandise
sporting the logo at his
Gift Shop, which we invite you to visit.
It is difficult to imagine a hymn
opposing the Anglican Covenant, but we can recommend a hymn
inspired by Anglican conflicts that celebrates what we believe
is a cornerstone of Anglicanism.
Many who want authority centralized
in the Anglican Communion and who see the Covenant as a mechanism
to accomplish that view either tradition or scripture as the
primary source of Anglican authority. We believe, however, that
Richard Hooker’s trio of scripture, tradition, and reason is
essential to authentic Anglicanism. (See
Introducing the No Anglican Covenant Coalition
and the No Anglican Covenant Web Site.)
The hymn “Authorities,”
inspired by a hymn emphasizing scripture, speaks to tradition
and reason, in addition to scripture. (You can also read a
fuller explanation of the origin of the new hymn.) “Authorities”

In this season of conflict within
the Anglican Communion, it seems especially appropriate to pray
for the unity of our churches and for the unity of the Communion
itself. We have prepared a page of relevant
prayers for the purpose.
A Unity Poem
We believe that unity within the
Anglican Communion does not demand the lockstep conformity implied
in the Anglican Covenant. The brief poem “Christian Unity” below
questions the value of religious disputes that cannot be resolved
definitively. This poem may be freely reproduced for non-commercial
purposes if the author is credited.
|Around the table gathered, we
Are one in sweet community,
For Christ has ransomed one and all
Who answer to his loving call.
We worship God
in many ways;
We celebrate on different days;
But Jesus is the guiding star
For Christians near and Christians far.
God’s plan for us is seldom clear;
We may a different drummer hear;
Yet, if we study and we pray,
The kingdom will be ours some day.
So let us vow to never fight
About who’s wrong and who is right
Concerning truths we cannot know
That turn our Christian friend to foe.
And let our worship fit our needs;
Let us unite in Christian deeds;
May we God’s love and mercy show
To those who don’t the Savior know.
