Comments: Dispose of the messy Anglican Covenant

Rochester Diocesan Synod voted against the covenant today:

Unverified (but what I scrawled down) figures were:


Bishops 1 - 0

Clergy 8 - 30 (3 abstentions)

Laity 14 - 26 (7 abstentions)

Who spoke, Jonathan?

Are there copies of the addresses (if any!)

Congratulations on the No Covenant Coalition's acquisition of Professor Marilyn McCord Adams to become its fourth Patron. Nothing quite like a woman's touch to bring a balance of wisdom - a bit like the Church, really. 'Female and Male created God them'.
