On Day 1, Spotlight on The Episcopal Church

February 14th, 2007 posted by kendall at 10:10 pm

The Episcopal Church’s response to the Windsor Report will be the focus of the first two sessions of the full primates’ meeting in Tanzania on Feb. 15. Significant changes have made to the draft agenda previously proposed by the Most Rev. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury.

In the morning, the primates will receive a briefing and report prepared by an advisory group which was appointed last September by the joint standing committee. The joint standing committee is composed of standing committee members from the primates and the Anglican Consultative Council.

The advisory group was asked to assist the Archbishop of Canterbury in preparing an initial response to the decisions on the Windsor Report made by the 75th General Convention last June. Because of the absence from the meeting of group member Archbishop Barry Morgan of Wales, it may be that Archbishop Williams will brief the primates on the work of the advisory group. Time has been left on the schedule for questions and discussion of the report and issues related to it.
