IEAB Responds to the Proposed Anglican Covenant

An official response to the Ridley Draft of the Anglican Covenant was published.  It reaffirms IEAB’s interest in engaging in conversation with fellow Anglicans around the world, while noting that an Anglican Covenant is not necessarily an appropriate way to do so.

IEAB’s response also points out that our laity and clergy overwhelmingly support the first three sections of the covenant. However, to most Brazilian Anglicans, the fourth section presents some problems that need to be more thoroughly discussed.
