Conservative Anglican leaders accept Archbishop of Canterbury invite to Primates' meeting

From Christian Today-

Leaders of the conservative Anglican churches of the Global South have accepted the invitation of Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby to attend the meeting of the 38 Primates of the worldwide Anglican Communion in January.

Their decision, made at the recent Global South Anglican meeting that was moved to Cairo from Tunisia for security reasons, augurs well for Archbishop Welby's hopes of restructuring the communion in line with a federal model. This would allow unity to be maintained through communion with Canterbury, while also acknowleding the deep divisions between the liberal provinces of the West and the more conservative provinces of the South over issues such as homosexuality.
