Greg Venables: We’re still not addressing the basic issue

[Church bTimes] 31 Jul 2008--The Presding Bishop of Bishop of the Southern Cone, the Most Revd Greg Venables, said there had been meaningful dialogue at the conference, but felt the real issues had still not been discussed.

“We’re still not addressing the basic issue which is whether or not we believe the same things and consider ourselves members of the same Church, and that’s obviously the thing that has caused people to break away from their national churches.”

He said he found the method of trying to discuss issues through Bible studies frustrating.
Regarding the observations put forward by the Windsor Continuation Group, he said they were covering ground the Primates had already looked at.
