Anglican Communion Office issues covenant study guide

From ENS

A guide to assist in the discussion and study of the Anglican Covenant has been released by the Anglican Communion Office.

The study guide and an accompanying question-and-answer document, available here “is intended for parishes, deaneries, dioceses or groups of individuals wishing to explore the covenant and the way it describes Anglican identity,” according to a press release.
A covenant first was proposed in 2004 as a way for the Anglican Communion to maintain unity amid differing viewpoints, especially concerning human sexuality issues and biblical interpretation.
The study guide — produced by a working group formed out of the Inter-Anglican Standing Committee on Unity Faith and Order — includes the text of the Anglican Covenant “interspersed with summaries of the material,” the release said.
