Episcopal Church General Convention - Day 1

And an interesting day it was.  Among the best parts was meeting any number of people I had previously known only virtually.

Even better was discovering a lot of strong opposition to the Anglican Covenant.  Many of the folk I spoke with understand that the centralization of authority implicit in the Covenant process is antithetical to Anglican history.

Our New Zealand colleague, Lawrence Kimberley, has provided a link to keep us updated on developments in the Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia who are also meeting in their General Synod / Hinota Whanui this week.  A decisive rejection of the Covenant by ACANZAP (which seems likely given the opposition of Tikanga Maori) will certainly affect the momentum of the issue here in Indianapolis.

Off to bed now.  Tomorrow is yet another longish day.
