I wasn't sure about ten, but I think I can do that in this given the slippery, fuzzy, all change situation I am in. I mean the Anglican Communion is:
- A witness to Jesus Christ;
- Avoids the inessentials in being a witness to Christ;
- Has a sensible approach to chief Presbyters - bishops - organising dioceses;
- Employs a geographical principle so that all can be asked to observe the faith;
- Gave the world a fabulous mixing of Catholic and Reformed (like the Old Catholics are after the event?);
- I still believe in tolerance in terms of welcoming and preparation, but only to meet where they are;
- The Catholics but especially the Evangelicals around the world have fed theology to and from different Churches
- It was spread by colonialism but became a critic of colonialism;
- It teaches the Romans against Churchy centralisation but also the Orthodox against separation;
- It is a ready, recognisable means by which Christians can assist other Christians from one part of the world to another.
These comments only make sense in the context of what appears above, what I have posted seconds after this entry.
