Reaffirming our Commitment to the Communion

Resolution A159, as amended, was just adopted by the House of Deputies. It can be seen in its amended form on the legislation site of General Convention found here.

There were two attempts to amend the resolution; one wanted to insert the word "independent," the other the word "autonomous." Both were defeated. I suspect that the fact that Ian Douglas spoke against both amendments had something to do with their sound defeat.

The vote was almost unanimous. And so we begin consideration of the Special Commission's resolutions, which will define our response to the Windsor Report, and point the direction of our future relationship with the Anglican Communion.
