By Mary Frances Schjonberg, May 15, 2007
[Episcopal News Service] Episcopalians have begun responding to questions in a study guide aimed at helping the Episcopal Church consider the draft version of a proposed Anglican Covenant.
Congregations, diocesan deputations to General Convention and individuals can all submit comments between now and the June 4 deadline.
House of Deputies President Bonnie Anderson said May 14 that some General Convention deputations have already met and formulated responses with the help of the study guide.
Responses can be e-mailed to email@example.com, faxed to 212-972-9322 or mailed to Draft Anglican Covenant, The Office of the General Convention, The Episcopal Church Center, 815 Second Ave, New York, NY 10017.
Prepared by a subcommittee of the Executive Council's International Concerns Standing Committee (INC), the six-page guide in English, French and Spanish is available here. The page includes individual links to each translation, along with links to covenant-related websites.
The draft text of the proposed Covenant, along with the first report of the Anglican Communion's Covenant Design Group, in English, French and Spanish are available here.
