Canadians look to 2013 Anglican Covenant vote

Canadians look to 2013 Anglican Covenant vote

Briefly noted in the Faith, Worship, and Ministry Committee section of yesterday’s Council of General Synod highlights, Anglican Church of Canada:

The Rev. Dr. Lynne McNaughton, FWMC member, noted that three General Synod groups are working on different aspects of the Anglican Covenant. The Primate, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, and the chancellor, David Phillip Jones, clarified that covenant-related work from FWMC and the Governance Working Group will be gathered by the Anglican Communion Working Group and will inform a resolution on the Anglican Covenant that will be brought to General Synod 2013.

As Primate, Hiltz is Chief Executive Officer of General Synod, whose main gathering is held every three years. Between those major meetings, business is conducted through the a smaller Council of General Synod that meets biannually.

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.
