A Brief Word on the Primates' Statement
Yesterday the Anglican primates concluded a significant meeting in Alexandria, Egypt. I will have more to say in due course. There's already a lot of good commentary out there in cyberspace. (Please do make the Covenant site your primary source.) I will weigh in when some of the dust has settled, but in the meantime I am very encouraged by Archbishop Rowan's thought summarized in the Anglican Communion News Service Report:
The need for a shift of focus in the life of the communion from autonomy of provinces with communion added on, to communion as the primary reality with autonomy and accountability understood within that framework.
