Anglican Consultative Council gets down to business

Anglican Consultative Council gets down to business

The Anglican Consultative Council meeting in (Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand) has begun the business of their meetings. Mary Frances Schjonberg of ENS reports:

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.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
