Anglican Church of Canada Update

SAT. PM UPDATE: The debate will continue on Sunday. Stay tuned at Anglican Essentials.

The Anglican Church of Canada General Synod has just passed this resolution:

BE IT RESOLVED:

That this General Synod accept the conclusion of the Primate’s Theological Commission’s St. Michael Report that the blessing of same-sex unions is a matter of doctrine, but is not core doctrine in the sense of being credal, and that it should not be a communion-breaking issue.

The last phrase, “and that it should not be a communion-breaking issue.” was added during debate.

The Resolution to watch is: A187 Blessing of Same Sex Unions. You can watch the proceeding live here.
