I had a worthwhile conversation with Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas about what happens now. Bishop Douglas is one of the Episcopal Church's representatives at the Anglican Consultative Council. As much as I'd love to be in Auckland, New Zealand for the ACC meeting this fall, such is not to be. Our Coalition hopes there will be a grown up conversation about an appropriate ratification threshold and a reasonable sunset clause. The Covenant has drained far too much energy from the life of the Communion for so little purpose. There needs to be a clear decision point at which the thing stands or falls.
I have no responsibilities between now and the departure of my flight on Friday morning. After 111 minutes on hold with Airmiles, it wasn't possible to move my flight a day sooner. Oh well. I expect I'll attend the final Convention Eucharist tomorrow, and perhaps spend much of the rest of the day trying to put paid to this lingering cold.
