P.B. Says Special Commission will Move Church Forward on Windsor Report

Bishop Griswold said Archbishop Eames’ remarks contributed to a climate of “trust” and helped to prevent the Windsor Report from becoming a “focal point” of division within the Episcopal Church.

“I particularly appreciated the way he talked about the Windsor Report as a process rather than as scripture or a Papal document,” he said. “The Windsor Report is a tool to help us live more deeply with each other. It’s about patterns of relationships and mutual understanding, not a litmus test.”

Responding to a question regarding the lack of time spent on the Windsor Report by the House of Bishops, at their Sept. 22-27 fall meeting, Bishop Griswold suggested that with the exception of individual dioceses the majority of study and reflection on the Windsor Report between now and the start of the 2006 General Convention, which meets June 13-21 in Columbus, Ohio, will be done by the special commission that was recently appointed.

Read it all. Archbishop Eames’ incorrect evaluation of ECUSA’s response thus far is discussed below. As even Robin Eames conceded, it is only his judgment alone.

The key remains the decision of the General Convention in response to the Windsor Report and the Dromantine Communique, and the evaluation of the Anglican Communion of that response. The membership of the Special Commission already gives further reason for skepticism that there will be a meaningful embrace of autonomy in communion.

For those of us who are denominationally challenged, what does PB stand for?

Presbyterian Baptists?
