Timing could not be better. Canada's General Synod is in session at the same time that The Episcopal Church is being punished. What an opportunity for the Canadian Church, which is also on the intimidation list, to support TEC by way of a formal resolution saying so in plain English.
So it was hoped that "gracious restraint" would prevail until the Covenant was in place. After that restraint would be mandatory, I suppose. So if the Episcopalian Church wanted to act as it felt the Spirit was prompting, the action had to happen before the Covenant was embraced. But what are the chances of the Episcopalian Church embracing the Covenant? Has it expressed a willingness to do so?
In case anyone outside of Canada is confused regarding the Silent night article, loonies and toonies are Canadian $1 and $2 coins.
Could someone clarify for me? In a previous exclusion from Communion bodies TEC and the ACofC were invited to voluntarily step out. Now "the Communion" has removed TEC representatives from ecumenical dialogue bodies. Has The Consultative Council met to do this? Has "the Communion" been consulted about it (openly at least) or is the a new authority seized by Rowan on the road to a post covenant world for Anglicans?
My question might be - of Canon Kearon: "During your visit to the General Synod of the A.C.of C., have you been able to answer your own question: about whether, or not, the Canadian Church has breached any of the Windsor moratoria? And has that in any way affected your discussions with any Synod member or with the Synod as a whole? If not, why not?
