"is to try and create an account of what’s gone on in the listening process,"

Ten minutes' work for most dioceses.

This is the last report on the "listening process" in the C of E.

6 longish paragraphs in which the bishops state the existing position and policy. And then 2 short paragraphs actually about the listening process, but giving no details of what may have been said or learnt.

NO sharing or listening is possible, one one party, is under duress, under threat, and most must remain in hiding, fearful for their well-beings, ministries, reputation and mental health and human flourishing.

Until all gay ministers and lay people and their partners and homes are freed, no 'listening process' worth the name can really happen.

GET real.
