Archbishop of Wales on how to conduct the same sex relations debate

The Governing Body of the Church in Wales is meeting this week. In his presidential address yesterday, the Archbishop of Wales (the Most Rev Dr Barry Morgan) outlined the background against which the same sex relations debate needs to be conducted within the Anglican communion in the months and years ahead. He addresses these five general issues

1. The Authority and Interpretation of Scripture
2. The nature of Anglicanism
3. Decision making within the Anglican Communion
4. The place of Lambeth Resolutions
5. The sexual issue in a wider context

and it’s all well worth reading.

There is a press release here and links to the full text here.

The British national newspapers do not appear to have covered this, but the icNetwork in North Wales has this story.
