Asking the Wrong Question

Over at the Cafe we are having a conversation about the question being asked of our polity and governance, "Who is the head of the Church?"

By asking the wrong question, we end up contravening our own common praying and history, and undermining the very Reason, Logos, Wisdom we have many authorities and dispersed authority in The Episcopal Church: Jesus Christ is Lord.

With regard to polity and governance, I assert that this is the wrong question. A proper question in this regard would be, "Who are the responsible-answerable authorities in this Church?"
