the windsor report

The Anglican Lambeth Commission on Communion has released its report.

I'm just a casual outside observer, but I don't think the Report looks especially promising. It says a lot of good things, no doubt, but lacks the kind of definitive plan and measures for the future of the Anglican Communion that I suspect much of the Communion was hoping for.

As I continue to read reactions, both from news services and from various parties within the Communion, it seems the document is getting different spins from different quarters. That's not entirely unexpected, given that it is supposed to provide some way forward for all involved. But it also doesn't bode well for its function as an actual means to greater unity.
