Anglican update

The Anglican Church throughout the world continues to lurch through its current crisis over sexual issues, and it was recently brought to my attention that there has a new development: the release of the St. Michael Report regarding the blessing of same-sex unions.

The St. Michael Report includes a study guide, so that local groups can reflect on the document and forward their responses to the Canadian Anglican church for consideration at the General Synod in 2007. I wonder if it would be useful to convoke an on-line Catholic discussion group to consider the matter. Obviously whatever the Anglicans decide will have important repercussions for the ecumenical movement in this country. Perhaps we can charitably offer a few reflections stemming from the Catholic tradition. Anybody out there who might be interested in jumping in on such a discussion?
