Focus of the Windsor 2004 Report

...We need to be clear about what the mandate of the Commission has been.... Archbishop of Wales, Barry Morgan, ... served as a member of the Lambeth Commission, and of the report he says the following. "It is not a report giving definitive answers to the issue of homosexuality in the church, as many people believe. The Commission was not charged with that task. Rather, the Commission was asked to find ways of keeping the Communion intact when some provinces had moved ahead on particular issues (and those issues did not necessarily have to be issues to do with human sexuality, although those were the presenting issues at present), which other provinces regarded as controversial and problematic. In short,

  • how do we make decisions as a Communion?
  • How do we govern our common life?
  • What means do we have for either consultation or restraint?"
