Just now there is no mechanism for summoning such an assembly. Rome may be the largest in numbers, but that does not make it superior to the sum total of all the parts. If the synod cannot decide, neither can the Vatican, nor Geneva. . .
We cannot live in a state of indecison. We have to be stewards of the time allotted to us on earth. The Church of England as part of worldwide Anglicanism is exercising its stewardship under God, in faith, with risk. That is how Christian pilgrimage has to be. I am glad to be an Anglican, even proud to be.
