BREAKING: Synod passes amended ACNA motion
I’ll have more to say soon about General Synod’s passage of the ACNA motion as amended. My quick comment is that Synod displayed a shocking lack of awareness of what this would mean in the US. They also seem to live in a cloud of ignorance about what’s coming their way when secessionists move into London.
According to the Church Times blog, here’s the final text as passed by General Synod:
That this Synod, aware of the distress cause by recent divisions within the Anglican churches of the United States of America and Canada,
(a) recognise and affirm the desire of those who have formed the Anglican Church in North America to remain within the Anglican family;
(b) acknowledge that this aspiration, in respect both of relations with the Church of England and membership of the Anglican Communion, raises issues which the relevant authorities of each need to explore further; and
(c) invite the Archbishops to report further to the Synod in 2011.
