With Faint Praise [AoC and "Primatial Oversight"]
Midwest Conservative Journal ^ | 12/01/2006 | Christopher Johnson

TEC’s recent proposal on alternate primatial oversight is officially dead in the water. Rowan Williams responds:

"The meeting in New York to consider the questions raised by requests for ’alternative primatial oversight’ has produced some imaginative proposals which represent, potentially, a very significant development.

"I am glad to see these positive suggestions and shall be giving them careful consideration. I hope that they will mark a step forward in the long and difficult process of working out future relationships within the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion in a manner faithful to the gospel requirements of forebearance and generosity."

For those who don’t speak Anglican, Dr. Williams just told TEC that while he appreciates that they’ve grasped the concept that United States Anglicanism is going to have to radically change, this idea is a non-starter and they’re going to have to take another run at it.
