[Global South Anglican] 28 Sep 2006--It is still less than a week since the Kigali Communiqué was released. The responses have been fast and furious.
I almost had a splitting headache reading those bent on reading schism into it. And a sense of deja vu from those who imagined another "I was not there but you put my name on it" scandal. It is interesting to note how fast some jumped on the ‘mistakes’ that ‘Global South’ leaders make, real or apparent. There is now an official explanation, which hopefully, can calm some nerves (and dash some hopes?). Some smell death, to further conversations or to the Communion. Some pronounced it ‘un-Anglican.’
Others however, have been reading it more carefully.
