From New Zealand come reports that two further dioceses have voted against adoption of the Anglican Covenant:
But, for the amended text of the resolution that was passed, please see the comments below.
Waiapu The following motion was passed by a 99.5% majority:
Waiapu affirms its desire to remain a member of the Anglican Communion. We do not believe that the proposed Anglican Communion Covenant will enhance the life of the Communion and request that General Synod/te Hinota Whanui declines to sign the Covenant. (All three regional conferences supported this motion going to Synod.)
The No Anglican Covenant campaign has criticised the materials recently issued in the Diocese of Oxford.
Meanwhile, the Living Church has published a number of articles in support of the Covenant, to which Lionel Deimel has helpfully provided a set of links. See this page. He explains why he did this here.
One of these is by Andrew Goddard who has published an interesting article which suggests that, in the light of the Anglican Covenant’s prospective adoption, some reforms are needed to the Anglican Instruments of Unity.
