Final Resolution on the Anglican Communion Covenant

Sphere: Related Content The ACC:

• thanks the Covenant Design Group for their faithfulness and respons­iveness in producing the drafts for an Anglican Communion Covenant and, in particular, for the Ridley Cambridge Draft submitted to this meeting;

• recognises that an Anglican Communion Covenant may provide an effective means to strengthen and promote our common life as a Communion;

• asks the Archbishop of Canter­bury, in consultation with the Secre­tary General, to appoint a small work­ing group to consider and consult with the Provinces on section 4 and its possible revision, and to report to the next meeting of the Joint Standing Committee;

• asks the JSC, at that meeting, to approve a final form of section 4;

• asks the Secretary General to send the revised Ridley Cambridge text, at that time, only to the member Churches of the Anglican Consultative Council for consideration and decision on acceptance or adoption by them as the Anglican Communion Covenant;

• asks those member Churches to report to ACC-15 on the progress made in the processes of response to, and acceptance or adoption of, the Covenant.

This is real confusion. Just like one commenter at anglicantv.org said:

"We can take heart that in MANY places around the globe there are VERY DEAR brothers and sisters in Christ who are focused, that is GOSPEL FOCUSED, and going about the Masters business pointing people to the
Saviour of the world, in accordance to the Great commission.
Sadly there are others who are navel gazing big time while in the area
where they could be reaching a harvest 'of souls'there are men and women dying in there sin.
We need to be going to the scriptures DAILY with an open mind seeking to
WALK in obedience to the Masters leading."


The church must march on and the gates of hell will not rpevail against it.
