I was listening to the Today programme this morning and heard a discussion on the European Union. I missed the beginning but I think the gist of it was that some countries might vote on something that not everyone can agree with. What was proposed was an A la Carte European Union.
Immediately that made me think of the Anglican Communion. We don’t need a Covenant – we need an Anglican Communion a la carte. We need to read from the same menu but have our own choices. We do that already with issues such as the ordination of women so why not with everything?
And on the subject of women… go over to Fr Simon’s blog for an excellent and heartfelt article on the upcoming vote for women bishops in the Church of England.
