BB NOTE: N.T. Wright still seems to be right. Remember when he said this: “‘I know what I heard, I know what I said. If people have changed their mind, they have changed their mind, but I rather doubt it.” The video was indeed not the letter. Stay tuned.
Here’s the latest from The Living Church:
A spokesman for Archbishop Williams told The Living Church the internet video presentation was “not related” to his forthcoming letter to the bishops of the Communion. In that letter, the archbishop is reported to ask that they predicate their attendance at the Lambeth Conference upon their willingness to accept the Windsor Report and Anglican Covenant processes.
The video presentation, titled “Better bishops for the sake of a better church,” was a pastoral didactic tool, the spokesman. The presentation broadcast on the internet video service, outlines the archbishop’s hopes for the conference.
The title of the “Better bishops” video, whose alliterative qualities mimic Country Life’s popular “better butter” advertisements on British television, speaks to the cause of some of the divisions within the church, and follow upon Archbishop Williams’ concern for stronger clerical formation and closer cooperation among the bishops of the Anglican Communion.
The letters affirming support for Windsor and the covenant processes had not yet been mailed, but would go out presently, the spokesman said.
