Sarah Hey’s Interview With Bishop MacPherson (Part I)

Read it all.

Looking at the recommendations of the meeting this afternoon, and at which there was standing room only, the recommendations appear about the same as that which came out of Dar es Salaam. The only exception to this as I recall, is the Dar es Salaam document carried stronger language with regard to non-compliance. For true purposes of accountability, I feel we truly must have a specified consequence spelled out.

Unlike the previous hearing, there were a number more bishops willing to speak publicly today about the damage that is taking place and the need for a Covenant that will provide clear direction to the Communion.

Sarah’s second article will have some of +Bruce’s thoughts on the Communion Partners movement.

    Looks like it will be the inside stratgey for the Diocese of WLA. according to +Bruce. Should make convention interesting…

    “Everyone there has the same concern,” said MacPherson, “which is the direction of the Communion and how to move forward. One thing that both I and Bob stressed is we’re not looking at competing groups of people. We both have the same goal and share the same dream, and that is a faithful orthodox proclamation and living out of the gospel, but that there are two different routes we are taking.”

    Wonder what the bishop will do and or say when he has parishes within his own diocese that choose different routes? Will he see it a complimentary or competing?
