Legislation – The Anglican Covenant

In recent years, there has been much work and discussion on the proposed Anglican Covenant which seeks to put a framework around the relationships among the provinces of the Anglican Communion. It was clear that the General Convention was not prepared to endorse the covenant at this time because of concerns about the fourth section of that document which outlines a disciplinary method for resolving disputes in the communion. Although there were many present who wanted to reject the Covenant, the only resolutions offered were to keep The Episcopal Church in that process, and the deputation endorsed both of those resolutions as we value our connections to other provinces of the Anglican Communion and did not wish to end that process at this time.
