I have a bit of a conundrum. I have always leaned towards the Reformed side of Anglicanism, albeit more of a High Church/Jacobean Anglican as was Bishop Hall. For instance I believe in the plene esse of the episcopacy and am vehemently against trying to sneak the 'Regulative Principle of Worship' into Anglicanism. Simultaneously I believe that if Anglicanism is to mean anything it should be via the BCP, the Ordinal and the XXXIX Articles. My problem lies in the homilies view on images in the church. I hold to the more Laudian/Lutheran view that, while we should avoid overt iconodulia, they are useful for the purpose of teaching and reverence. The more I read this stance seems extremely at odds with the early English Reformers, the homilies (in particular the "On the Perils of Idolatry") and thus, by extension, the Articles which gives the homilies its authority. This is especially difficult for me as the church I worship in has a large crucifix, stations of the cross, icons & etc... Any help?
