A group, known as the Global South Anglican Communion (a spin off from Anglicanism) is currently meeting in Singapore. The week-long conference, whose theme is 'The Gospel of Jesus Christ: Covenant for the People and Light for the Nations', ends on Friday.
Delegates throughout the week are expected to discuss how the various Churches can support one another in missionary work and church-building. Also on the agenda will be the impact the consecration of a lesbian as bishop will have on the Anglican community. On the agenda too is community's response to the Anglican Covenant, a document put together last December that outlines the theological identity of the Anglican Church.
On Friday, a summary of the meetings is expected to be sent to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, who leads the 75 million-strong Church. Dr Williams was invited to the meeting but his diary did not permit him to come, said event organisers.
COMMENT: Well, I suppose if you believe Jesus Christ came to earth to tell his followers to hate and exclude people, you'll believe anything - including Lambeth's diplomatic "up yours!"
