The Anglican Church of Canada needs more clarity about what the “relational consequences” would be for not adopting the proposed Anglican Communion Covenant. This is one of the key messages that Council of General Synod (CoGS) members said the church must convey when the 15th Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) meets in New Zealand Oct. 27 to Nov. 7. Member provinces of the Communion have been asked to report on progress made in response to the covenant, which has been recommended as a way of healing divisions triggered by debates over sexuality. At their May meeting, some CoGS members said there’s a lot of uncertainty about what happens when a province decides whether or not to adopt the covenant even though a study guide was prepared for Canadian Anglicans. The Anglican Church of Canada will decide what action to take at General Synod 2013.
