Anglican Church of Canada Council of General Synod Highlights from May 27

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Martha Gardner, partner from the Episcopal Church, spoke about her church's General Convention in Indianapolis in July. She noted that like COGS, General Convention is working to renew church structures. Ms. Gardner said that the convention will consider 58 resolutions relating to structural change. General Convention will also discuss several resolutions relating to the proposed Anglican Covenant.

The Rev. David Pritchard, partner for the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund, shared his reflections, emphasizing that PWRDF sees itself as "the mission arm of the Anglican Church of Canada." He described how PWRDF has been successful in working with the Canadian International Development Agency. He commended the work of PWRDF partners and staff and ended by praising the work COGS has done at this meeting.

The interesting thing about this report is not what they did but what they didn’t do. They did alot of political mumbo jumbo and no real Christian action. This looks more the the board of the United Way or Red Cross than a Christian Church meeting.  They did pray, but they still do that at the United Way down here in the Old South.
