Ut unum sint

+Rowan's message on the Covenant - carried on the YES to the Covenant site - ends with an important emphasis on how our significant ecumenical partners support the Covenant.  This debate is not only about the Anglican Communion's internal relationships.  It is also about whether or not we as Anglicans are authentically oriented towards the restoration of communion across historic divides.  The ethic of autonomy suggests not, prizing independence over interdependence.  In contrast, the communion ecclesiology of the Covenant signals our hope, and commitment to, 'that they may be one'.
