Primates engage in 'intense listening,' discuss Windsor response
By Matthew Davies
[ENS] Intense listening, characterized by an expression of "patience, graciousness, care and respect" was the atmosphere in which the Primates gathered February 15, said Australia's Archbishop Phillip Aspinall during a media briefing following the conclusion of their first day of sessions.
"There has been no talk of schism in the meeting at all," he said.
After considering a report from the Communion sub-group that was charged with monitoring the response of the Episcopal Church's General Convention to the Windsor Report, the Primates -- who saw the report for the first time today -- concluded that a working group be established to document the day's discussions and report back to them on the morning of February 16.
