Task group agreed to in primates gathering convenes for first time

Task group agreed to in primates gathering convenes for first time

Anglican Communion News Service:

The Task Group set up after the Primates’ Gathering and Meeting in January to “maintain conversation” has met for the first time….

The Primates asked the Archbishop of Canterbury to appoint the group to restore relationships, rebuild mutual trust, heal the legacy of hurt and explore deep differences. Archbishop Welby presented the group’s mandate to ACC16 in Lusaka in April where it was received and affirmed. This week seven members of the group have been meeting in London. An eighth joined in via video conferencing.

Among the members of the task group are the Presiding Bishop Michael Curry of the Episcopal Church, Coadjutor Bishop Linda Nicholls of Huron in Canada, Archbishop Ian Ernest of the Province of the Indian Ocean, the Moderator of the Church of Bangladesh, Bishop Sarker, and Canon Rosemary Mbogo, the Provincial Secretary of the Anglican Church of Kenya. See the article from ACNS for further details.

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.
