According to the Anglican Communion News Service African bishops from Ghanan, Kenya and South Africa are committed to continuing the Indaba project which gives them "excitement and hope for the future of the Communion." They recommend covenant relationships like those existing in partnerships between dioceses:
Last week the bishops of Ho in Ghana, Mbeere in Kenya and Saldanha Bay in South Africa gathered at St Julian’s in Limuru, Kenya, to discuss their and their dioceses' involvement in the Anglican Communion’s Continuing Indaba project. After a dynamic and vibrant three days the bishops issued the following agreement:
"AFRICAN CONVERSATION PROCESS
ST JULIAN’S CONFERENCE CENTRE, LIMURU
16 – 18 NOVEMBER 2010
1. Bishops’ Agreement
We the Bishops of the Dioceses of HO (Ghana), Saldanha Bay (South Africa) and Mbeere (Kenya) meeting at St Julian’s Centre, Limuru - Kenya between 16 – 18 November 2010, have generously committed ourselves to one another in the Indaba process by intensifying relationships across the communion, energising local and global mission and enabling genuine conversation across differences.
In our conversations concerning the Indaba process, we discovered that we have unique contextual interpretations of the concept of Indaba. For example, in the Diocese of HO, indaba has a strong element of an end in sight, conversation does not go on forever (The old lady must come in- The old lady is a Ghanaian tradition of seeking wisdom)
In the Diocese of Mbeere, Indaba takes place when the time is right, it focuses on the end while acknowledging a relevant appropriate process.
In the Diocese of Saldanha Bay Indaba means keeping on talking without necessarily focussing on an outcome. Focus is on the value of the actual process.
With this commitment, the Bishops return to their Dioceses with excitement and hope for the future of the communion.
Philippians 4: 8-9: “Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things” (TNIV).
Details of our future meetings will be sent out in the next letter.
We further desire to develop a covenant relationship, like those existing in the partnerships between Dioceses.
Bishop Moses of Mbeere
Bishop Mathias of HO
Bishop Raphael of Saldanha Bay
