The Independent -- Don't be shy of evangelising, archbishops tell Anglicans

I saw this article from The Independent 

The Church of England's two most senior bishops have called on fellow Anglicans to embrace the Christian mission and not "fight shy" of converting people from other faiths. In an uncharacteristically evangelical statement from a church that has tended to avoid overt proselytising in recent decades, Dr Rowan Williams and Dr John Sentamu said Christians should not feel "embarrassed or awkward" about bringing others towards Christianity.

Interesting take on this by Maggi Dawn over at her blog. In her last paragraph she argues that whilst it is fine for the Archbishops of Canterbury & York to encourage evangelism their concurrent effort to negate the impact of women bishops could be seen as a stumbling block to many!
