Scotland's Primus takes on important role at meeting of world-wide Anglican Communion Primates
The Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church and Bishop of Aberdeen & Orkney, the Most Revd Bruce Cameron will have an important role in next week's meeting of the world-wide Anglican Communion Primates (leaders), when he will be tasked with presenting a summary of the responses from the entire Anglican Communion to the Windsor Report presented by the Most Revd Robin Eames, the Primate of All Ireland, last October.
The Windsor Report addresses some of the main issues facing the Anglican Communion today, including the response to the consecration of the American Bishop, the Rt Revd Gene Robinson, and the future pattern of the Anglican Communion in how it deals with divisive issues.
The Most Revd Bruce Cameron will take the views of his own church to the primates meeting, giving a Scottish perspective on the Windsor Report, but has also spent the last few weeks absorbing the comments and reactions of all other member countries of the Anglican Communion.
He says "the responses received from many in the Scottish Episcopal Church very much reflect a wide diversity of view and opinion. There has been particular concern about the sense of centralisation of authority to which the Anglican Communion may be moving towards. However, from the Scottish responses and those from across the world, there is a genuine desire for the Anglican Communion to stay together and find a way through its present difficulties.
"Although time will be spent in discussing the responses to the Windsor Report we will also spend time in prayer and bible study and will look at some of the issues affecting today's world, including a first hand account of the Anglican church's work in South East Asia since the tsunami."
The meeting of the Primates of the Anglican Communion takes places in Dromantine Conference Centre, Newry, Northern Ireland, from 21-25 February.
