They feared the recent rejection of the covenant by the Church of England jeopardized its future and clarifications about that were now needed before a decision could be made.The Bishop of St Asaph, Gregory Cameron, who proposed a motion that was amended in light of the Church of England decision, said, “We have given the covenant an amber light rather than a green light but in doing so we are being honest about where the church is today. However, I think we need to reaffirm our strong commitment to each other through the saving power of Christ revealed in the Gospels. That is what I believe the covenant ultimately calls us to do and I hope one day the Church in Wales will be able to vote for it.”The amended motion, which was carried overwhelmingly, was that the governing body:affirm the commitment of the Church in Wales to the life of the Anglican Communion;affirm its readiness to engage with any ongoing process of consideration of the Anglican Communion covenant;request clarification from the 15th meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council as to the status and direction of the covenant process in the light of the position of the Church of England;urge upon the Instruments of Communion a course of action which continues to see reconciliation and the preservation of the communion as a family of interdependent but autonomous churches.A copy of the briefing paper on the Anglican covenant is here.

Thus, separations, schisms and more indepedent churches will keep erupting everywhere, while the Church of Rome will be fortified through the Papal Ordinariates.ALL THESE REALITIES ARE DIRECT CONSEQUENCES OF ACTIONS THAT WERE NOT DULY ANALYZED by the “Church or people of God”. Thus, WE must face these consequences and act in accordance …Once again, the the historic apostolic successors should re-evaluate the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the re-evangelization of the pieces left by a no-covenant.
