"The Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) concluded its 12-day New Zealand meeting optimistic about the future of the Anglican Communion. It also renewed its commitment to addressing gender-based violence, the environmental crisis and social justice issues. Outgoing Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams noted that the work actually questions 'what kind of humanity we're seeking to promote and serve, which is a deeply Christian question'. Suzanne Lawson, Anglican Church of Canada lay delegate, said the meeting proved that 'the Anglican Communion actually works. It's alive and well, it's exciting, it's mission-focused'. The ACC met October 27 to November 7  in Auckland". The ACC: Passed a resolution of support for the continuing indaba process, describing it as 'honest conversation that works to build community .. and provide a context in which conflict can be resolved'. Urged Anglicans to 'show moral courage' in addressing the cause and impact of environmental change. Heard from the Bible in the Life of the Church Project, that in spite of their diversity, Anglicans everywhere share a 'high common ground' over the place of the Bible in their lives. Adjusted the wording of the fourth Mark of Mission to read: 'To seek to transform the unjust structures of society to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation'. The Canadian Church recommended 'to pursue peace, conflict transformation and reconciliation' as a sixth Mark of Mission in 2007. Passed a resolution calling on the Communion to implement a charter to make churches safer".
