From Church Times-
THE Archbishop of Canterbury has written to every Primate in the Anglican Communion about the next Primates’ Meeting, to be held in Canterbury in October.
It is now just over a year since the last Primates’ Meeting, in Canterbury, which envisaged “consequences” for the Episcopal Church in the United States. A press release from the Anglican Communion Office this week stated that these consequences had meant that TEC representatives at the meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council in Zambia last year had not taken part in “formal votes on issues of doctrine and polity”.
On Wednesday, these representatives issued a statement disagreeing with this account of events.
“Each of us attended the entire ACC-16 meeting and voted on every resolution that came before the body, including a number that concerned the doctrine and polity of the Anglican Communion,” they wrote. “As the duly elected ACC members of a province of the Anglican Communion, this was our responsibility and we fulfilled it.”
Speaking to the Soul: Alleluia! Alleluia!
