Thought for 06.02.08

The Anglican Covenant process, as it unfolds, is more about practical issues of working together in spite of disagreements, rather than coming apart over them.

Well said Tobias, and I agree.

I wish I felt that were so. The Covenant process feels like a way to sew things up and close down space for disagreement. Work through disagreement or work together in the midst of disagreement seems to mean as long as those who represent the problem aren't present in the discussions. The ABC's particular views on the episcopate and Communion=one Church as well as the uniformity some seek give me great pause everytime I hear "covenant".
