ACI: Description and Comments on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s 2007 Advent Pastoral Letter and its significance for the Anglican Communion

[Covenant] 20 Dec 2007--The Archbishop of Canterbury’s long-awaited Advent Letter is, in many ways, a sequel to his reflection of June 2006 - ‘The Challenge and Hope of Being An Anglican Today’. It is, in fact, a longer document (at over 4,300 words compared to the earlier reflection’s 3,350 words) and one which repays careful and repeated study rather than instant reactions. The present comments are not meant to pre-empt this need for patient reflection, through a simple summary; rather, we hope to contribute to it through attentive and extended reading of its meaning.
