If memory serves, back before the ELCA and TEC-USA had a "full communion" agreement, they had a "eucharistic sharing" agreement, right? I don't recall the year.
As I recall, Peter, (and I was ELCA at the time), this is correct.

"Call to Common Mission" is more than eucharistic hospitality, getting to Edwin's thought.
It is called, as I remember, full altar and pulpit fellowship - sharing of clergy, etc. Perhaps that's as close to a definition of "full communion" as one can get.

I am silently encouraging by example the acceptance of Anglo-Catholicism in my church; or rather, the awareness of Anglo-Catholicism. I'm not encouraging merging with any other church.

I converted myself a couple of years ago, Mum had just died ,those who cared were the local Catholic Priest and the congregation. The Anglican church knew what have happened but have not contacted me to this day and that includes the clergy!

I also cared for her for several years but may as well have dropped off the face of the earth as far as the Anglican church was concerned, again it was the local Catholic Priest and the congregation who cared and kept me sane.

I said the use was misleading not the term.

If the term is not misleading, and I am using it correctly, how am I misleading?

I was a Baptist( not that attending a denom makes one anything) when I was brought into the Church. I could not have changed them and I wasn't going to try. My first obligation is to my own soul and leading the way by example and commitment. I am where I needed and need to be. I prefer non Catholic denom to the archaic and inaccurate term "protestant". They are generally not protesting..they are just not Catholic.

What about non-Catholic religion?

When it comes to changing the minds of non-catholics about the Blessed Virgin Mary it seems to be an uphill battle. Mary is the one name that if you mention it in a group of non-catholics, you can almost feel the ice in the room. How that must break our Lord's heart.

I live in Calgary which is a huge city with a long winter. I'm a widow and I'm not comfortable driving long distances. It takes me 1 1/2 hours by bus to attend an Anglo Catholic Church. So I attend our neighbourhood Anglican Church which is close enough to walk to and one of our three Priests is Anglo Catholic. I have never made any secret of the fact that I am an Anglo Catholic and I love Mary but I don't expect to ever change anyone's thinking...although I do keep praying. Every once in awhile I come across someone else in our Parish who is also an Anglo Catholic which I feel is a gift to me from the Lord...so I don't feel so all alone.

My advice to anyone who loves and respects Mary, if the circumstances permit, is to seriously consider changing to the Catholic Church or the Anglo Catholic Church.

I meant perfect as a matter of sinless members. I agree that the CC has the fullness of Truth.
