The Global Center

"The Global Center" is a term in contemporary Anglican power struggles (I almost wrote "politics" but let's call it what it is) but I am using it today in a geographic sense. Hoy hubo un visitatante desde Ecuador. ¡Bienvenido a este sitio! Today we had a visitor from Ecuador. Welcome to this site!

Caminante was in Ecuador along with other members of the Executive Council not so long ago and wrote about it here and here.
