Fearing 'Exclusionary' Covenant, Olympia Urges Lambeth Cancellation


[The Living Church] 6 Nov 2007--Convention delegates in the Diocese of Olympia said they are "leery" of the presentation of an "exclusionary" Anglican Covenant at the 2008 Lambeth Conference and approved a resolution calling for postponement of next year’s conference of bishops.

The Nov. 2-3 annual meeting at the Tacoma Sheraton Hotel and Convention Center was the first since Bishop Greg Rickel was consecrated in September.

By a vote of 299-79, clergy and lay delegates voted to approve an amended resolution calling for the 2008 Lambeth Conference to be postponed “until the listening process is more complete.”
