Surprised that Steven Bates does not understand how things work – bit embarassing?

The Primates have NOT “accepted” the report – they have received it and will be discussing it and then will make a statement on whether they accept or reject it.

Also, it is good they are talking with KJS – but note they are not at the communion “table” with TEC’s representative.

Also, +Duncan has not left Tanzania ….. Mr Bates seems to be somewhat out of line with the facts.

I think the important thing about this Report is not whether it will be amended or not but that it re-introduces a civilised tone, instead of the incessant shrieks and yellings meant to shut out listening, conversation and agreement (to disagree).
