Time off at the Conference

July 27, 2008 at 10:02 pm Leave a comment

Saturday afternoon and Sunday have been quieter days here-a chance to stand back from the routine of the conference and take stock. Where have we got to and what do we want from the remaining week?

So far we have had some space to be reflective during the opening days of the retreat in the Cathedral. We have settled well into the rhythm of Bible Study and we are trying to make the indaba process work, although most of those groups have decided in one way or the other to adapt the timetable in order to make space for real encounters. We have also had a huge quantity of special sessions of one sort or another covering every subject from global warming to ministry appraisal and some high profile plenaries on evangelisation.

So where are we now? Some appear to be feeling that the conference must now start to identify the main messages to send to the Anglican Communion. Others feel that the process of relationship building still has further to go before we shall be in a position to make a clear statement on behalf of all the members.

But certainly the next few days are going to be demanding and tiring as we seek as faithfully as we can to craft something which can represent the mind of the conference. We shall need an atmosphere of trust and prayer if we are to achieve that.
