The Washington Post has reactions to the reflections of the Rowan Williams to the recent actions of General Convention. Among those interviewed are the Bishop of Virginia the Rt. Rev. Peter Lee, and the leader of CANA the Right Rev. Martyn Minns.
About the Williams' notion of a two-track system that might give the Episcopal Church a secondary role:
"It doesn't contribute to holding people together," said Bishop Peter James Lee of the Virginia Diocese. "Even though he explicitly says this is not a first-class, second-class division, it feels that way."Minns finds fault as well: "It's well meaning but, I think, a futile attempt to paper over two irreconcilable truth claims."
Lee said Williams's essay doesn't make clear whether the Episcopal Church would continue to participate in church governance if a two-track system were adopted.

Christian Post adds: While Minns appreciates the effort to avoid schism and keep the 77 million-member Anglican Communion intact, he says the two-track model is not feasible at all.
