Along with my Episcopal Church Convenor colleague, Lionel Deimel, I attended a meeting of the legislative subcommittee charged with consolidating the assorted Covenant resolutions into more or less one votable resolution. The current trend actually seems to be for two resolutions. The first would affirm the Anglican Communion. The second would offer a rather fudge-laden "maybe" on the Anglican Covenant. There still seems to be much (perhaps deliberate) confusion that rejecting the Covenant would somehow set the Episcopal Church outside the Communion - despite the growing list of rejections to date (Philippines, England, Scotland) and the likely imminent rejection by Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia.
Despite this, the few adamant Covenanters I've spoken to seem quite convinced their project is doomed. (A certain pro-Covenant bishop asked that we not gloat too loudly when the time comes. I will attempt to oblige.)
Tomorrow, an early meeting of the same subcommittee, followed by another day of staffing the booth. In the evening, the World Mission Committee will hold hearings on the Anglican Covenant, which will be our best hope to shape whatever camel of a resolution eventually emerges from the committee. We intend to press for a clear "no." In due course, watch the Comprehensive Unity blog for an essay, Why Not "Maybe", which will be published in tomorrow's edition of Issues, which will be distributed tomorrow morning at General Convention.
