Speaking of the Anglican Covenant ...

... which we really haven't been lately, but evidently they have been "across the pond" as the Church Times is reporting, "The Church of England response to the draft Anglican Covenant was published on Wednesday" and provides this link to the response itself.

Today's article also includes this opinion from Stephen Slack, head of the legal office and legal adviser to the General Synod:
... it would be unlawful for the Synod to delegate its decision-making power to the Primates. It “could not sign up to a Covenant which purported to give the Primates of the Communion the ability to give ‘direction’ about the course of action the C of E should take.” A new form of words that removes the word “direction” is suggested.

Any suggestions?????
