Anglican Journal reports on the consultation between Canadian and African bishops that began at Lambeth 2008:
General Synod has released a series of seven video interviews with Canadian and African bishops, capturing the highlights from the Toronto meeting of the Consultation of Anglican Bishops in Dialogue, June 2012.
The consultation is a fluid group of bishops—from Canada, the U.S., and various African countries—who seek to build common understanding and respect among different parts of the Anglican Communion. It began at the 2008 Lambeth Conference, at a time of great tension within the Anglican Communion over issues of same-sex unions and larger questions of scriptural interpretation.
At Lambeth, Archbishop Colin Johnson of Toronto and the Rev. Canon Dr. Isaac Kawuki Mukasa, a Ugandan-Canadian, began conversations with African bishops. African and Canadian dioceses then gradually started theological correspondence, first on human sexuality and later mission.
The consultation has met in person three times, most recently in Toronto last June, and is continuing its work together.
