The Archbishop of Canterbury’s reflection (one item down) deserves a long and thoughtful response. This isn’t it. In this post I am mainly interested in whether you think he committed any news today.
I’d make one point.
Dr. Williams says that the communion has “some very hard work to do” to shape the covenant he is touting, and says that the next Lambeth Conference “ought to address this matter directly and fully as part of its agenda.” This would seem to indicate that our bishops are going to be invited, as we can hardly be asked to sign on to a covenant that we play no role in shaping.
