Perhaps, with regard to the Church of Scotland, the C of E bishops could have some "compassionate listening" exercises, meet in secret, put the whole thing off for further study, and make sure not to involve the parties involved. After all, that's how they've managed the LGBT issues. Oh, and they must consult the African bishops as well.

The Big Question is did the SEC jump or were they pushed out of the discussions which resulted in the Columba Declaration? From all that I have read it seems to have been the former. In which case why are they making such a hue and cry when they excluded themselves from the deliberations?

Re "Reform and Renewal in the Church of England, Martyn Percy of Christ Church Oxford has some fairly forthright criticism, on the Modern Church web-site.
