ACC: a review of actions taken

I have written this article for Anglicans Online, reviewing the main resolutions passed so far by the Anglican Consultative Council.

The full detail (3 appendices to the resolution) concerning the proposed constitutional change is not yet available to me, but I will add that information to the AO article, and also here, as soon as it is received.

Simon, Can you explain to us what the exclusion of the ACC and ECUSA really means in practical terms? I have seen it described as expulsion from the communion and as an insignificant banning from committees that we weren’t going to be on anyway. How serious is it? Thanks for your help.

Thanks, Simon. I’ve found it interesting that the only subject upon which comment is being made in the discussion is the place of gay people (espececially gay men) in the Church. A bit sad, really.

Simon:

I’m wondering if there is a process in place for writing a final draft of the Anglican Covenant and getting it adopted.

This seemed to me one of the most productive proposals in the Windsor Report and I haven’t seen anything on it since.
