Dr. Chris Seitz: Response to the Statement of the ABC Regarding Lambeth Conference

[Stand Firm] 23 May 2007--Some Anglicans, especially critics of the authority of the primates meeting as an Instrument of Unity/Communion, have tended to see the four Instruments of Communion as competitors. There is no evidence that this view is held by the Archbishop of Canterbury, who is himself an Instrument, and who presides at the Lambeth Conference, the primates meeting and the Anglican Consultative Council. Clearly he views the Instruments as mutually encouraging, even as they have a specific and discrete identity and remit.
