The "Global South" folks have concluded their confab in Rwanda. The meeting has, of course, concluded with the release of a yet-another-statement -- this one called the "Kigali Communiqué"-- which will, I'm sure, be the subject of much conversation, debate, dissection and differences-of-opinion. The entire statement is available online on the Global Anglican South website but here -- for my money -- is the gauntlet toss from Akinola et al:
10-b. At the next meeting of the Primates in February 2007 some of us will not be able to recognize Katharine Jefferts Schori as a Primate at the table with us. Others will be in impaired communion with her as a representative of The Episcopal Church. Since she cannot represent those dioceses and congregations who are abiding by the teaching of the Communion we propose that another bishop, chosen by these dioceses, be present at the meeting so that we might listen to their voices during our deliberations.
There's more about forming a "separate ecclesiastical structure of the Anglican Communion in the USA" etc, etc, etc. but if this doesn't send a message loud and clear to the ABofC, the ACO and whatever other combos there are in this increasingly dense Anglican Alphabet Soup that nothing short of schism will appease these this bunch I don't know what will!
The gauntlet is down ... let's see whether Canterbury has the wisdom, courage and/or backbone to deal with it.
