"African and North American bishops left the recent Consultation of Anglican Bishops in Dialogue 'with great hope', they said in a collective statement issued at the conclusion of their meeting in Cape Town, South Africa, from May 2 to 5 [2013]. The dialogue was the fourth in a series of meetings established to help heal divisions within the Anglican Communion. This meeting focused on reconciliation, and included presentations on Truth and Reconciliation commissions in South Africa, Canada and Burundi". The 18 bishops were from Kenya, South Africa, Burundi, Zambia, South Sudan, Malawi, Ghana, the U.S. and Canada. The Rev. Canon Isaac Kawuki-Mukasa. from the national office of the Anglican Church of Canada, said: "The bishops' differences, particularly on issues of sexuality, have not disappeared ... 'but the good thing is that they have become friends now'." "The bishops have committed to meeting next year [2014] and possibly the year after as well".

"The Anglican Church of Canada hosted the third Consultation of Anglican Bishops in Dialogue in June [2012]. It grew out of Lambeth 2008, which uncovered divisions on the issue of human sexuality and same-sex relationships. The group was originally organized by Archbishop Colin Johnson of the diocese of Toronto. 'There's a real commitment and a deep recognition that we need each other', said Archbishop Johnson".

Notes
"The years leading up to the 2008 Lambeth Conference uncovered serious divisions and disagreements between African and other Anglicans on the issues of human sexuality and same-sex relationships. Recognizing the danger of this drift, Archbishop Colin Johnson of the diocese of Toronto and metropolitan of the ecclesiastical province of Ontario, assumed a leading role in forming the Consultation of Anglican Bishops in Dialogue. The dialogue held its first consultation in London in 2010, its second the following year in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, and its third in 2012 outside Toronto. What started as a debate focused on human sexuality has evolved into something much more, says the Rev. Dr. Isaac Kawuki Mukasa, co-ordinator for dialogue at the Anglican Church of Canada. 'The consultation has become a distinct voice within the Anglican Communion, and the statements it makes at the end of each dialogue are having an impact, prompting both positive and negative responses'. Mukasa points out by way of example that the deeply conservative bishop of the diocese of Mombasa, Julius Kalu, is now reaching out to Kenya's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. 'He believes that Christ would prefer dialogue to ostracization', says Mukasa".

Notes
"Participants in the Consultation of Anglican Bishops in Dialogue, at the end of their fifth meeting May 22 to 25 [2014], said they have come to realize that reconciliation is 'far beyond agreeing to disagree' but is about seeking 'not only to tolerate but to understand'. The consultation, which gathered six bishops from Canada, two from the U.S. and 15 from various countries in Africa, met in Coventry, England". "Meeting at the cathedral has been 'providential', said the bishops in a statement. 'We have come to see the challenges of our present life as being less a failure of our life together than an opportunity to live out the truth of what we have been called to be'." "Bishop Jane Alexander, diocese of Edmonton, said the change in the level of understanding among bishops has been 'huge'."

Notes
"Nineteen bishops from North America and Africa have acknowledged that the conflict around sexuality in the Anglican Communion has given them an opportunity to 'build bridges of mutual understanding'. 'We have been engaged in a process of patient and holy listening ..,' the bishops said in a joint document called 'A Testimony of Grace', released March 1 [2011], after the meeting in Dar es Salaam. 'We are stronger in relationship than when we are apart', they said. Christian dialogue, they added, is not about 'convincing the other of the righteousness of one's position ..' but about 'turning to one another with openness'. The bishops identified issues of poverty and peace as their 'deepest concerns' and said that global partnerships can have 'significant positive impact'." [Text of entire article.]
