Using the image of the stained-glass windows that soar above the clear-glass doors of Holy Trinity Cathedral here and surround the members of the Anglican Consultative Council, Anglican Communion General Secretary Kenneth Kearon called on the ACC Oct. 29 (local time) to look outward as well as inward during the remaining 10 days of the council’s meeting.
“To meet in a place such as this can never be an ivory tower experience – we see God’s world outside, no matter which direction we turn,” Kearon said. “This building itself is a parable of the wondrous God sheltering, protecting, yet drawing us continually into conversation with the world God has created and which Jesus died to save.”
…This 15th meeting of the ACC began Oct. 27 and continues until Nov. 7…..
The work ahead of the council includes reviewing the activities of the Anglican Communion Office staff and the communion’s official networks that help coordinate the communion’s work of mission and social justice, the communion’s interfaith and ecumenical dialogue efforts, as well as theological education, the evolution of the instruments of communion and the status of the Anglican Covenant.
