Three member bishops of Communion Partners have submitted a General Convention resolution that affirms the proposed Anglican Communion Covenant. The Rt. Rev. John C. Bauerschmidt, Bishop of Tennesseee, proposed the resolution, joined by the Rt. Rev. Daniel H. Martins, Bishop of Springfield, and Michael G. Smith, Bishop of North Dakota.
The resolution recognizes that the Covenant "can only be entered into according to the procedures" of the Episcopal Church's Constitution and Canons....
General Convention now faces three possible responses to the Covenant: the Communion Partners resolution; a task force report that says the Episcopal Church is "unable to adopt the Anglican Covenant in its present form"; and a resolution from the Bishops of Connecticut, North Carolina and Texas that neither affirms nor rejects the Covenant in whole but asks for continued Communion-wide discussion of its fourth section, which has attracted the strongest resistance.
