Opening remarks by Archbishop Ian Ernest, Chairman of the Council of Anglican Provinces in Africa (CAPA), reveals that he will be part of a small group of primates who will meet with the Archbishop of Canterbury before the Primates Meeting. From Ernest's remarks:
As regards the Primates Meeting hosted by the Archbishop of Canterbury due to take place early next year, we shall be able to express ourselves but the decision to attend rests solely on the individual Archbishop.Read his remarks at Anglican Communion News Service.
The Archbishop of Canterbury has invited me in my capacity of CAPA Chairman to be part of a preparatory committee. He is also anxious that a small group of primates meet with him. I would like to have your opinion and thoughts about it....
May I also thank the CAPA General Secretary and the secretariat for enabling this meeting to happen.
Archbishop Hiltz said the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams may try to deal with this problem by arranging prior meetings of smaller groups of like-minded primates.
