Anglican Communion Mess

Here is the conclusion from the meeting of the Primates (and yes, that's a stupid name - guess it might help keep them humble) of the Anglican Communion.

Basically, it recognises there's a big mess, says that the way forwards is to have a formal covenant for the Anglican communion, which is still being drafted and needs to be voted on by various people. It recognises that TEC/ECUSA currently needs to sort its act out if it wants to be part of it. It also says that the African bishops currently overseeing parishes in the US will need to stop, but recognises that there's a pastoral need there and doesn't really expect them to stop until some of the rest of the mess sorts itself out.
