Deep Engagement, Fresh Discovery

In his introduction to the Report, the Chair of the Steering Group, Archbishop David Moxon from the Province of the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia says this:-

“The Anglican Communion has always cherished Scripture and given it a central place in its life. This emphasis was historically summed up in Article 6 of the 39 Articles, “Holy Scripture containeth all things necessary to salvation” and is confirmed by the way Scripture is so heavily drawn on in our liturgical life. In recent years the Communion has sought to handle the diversity of opinions in relation to moral and ethical issues. However, in turning to Scripture for insights we have discovered that we reach different conclusions as to the way forward. This raised the question as to whether we might benefit, as a Communion, by exploring in some depth the way we go about this engagement with and interpretation of Scripture.”

This report captures some of those findings, and I would strongly commend it to people to read.
