Listening Process facilitator meets with representatives of Integrity, other groups

July 2, 2007

From the ENS.

A group brought together by Integrity USA, the church’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) affinity group, spent June 27-28 telling the facilitator of the Anglican Communion’s Listening Process about their experience of being homosexual or transgender, or having a family member or friend who is. In addition, the group, meeting at the General Theological Seminary with the Rev. Canon Phil Groves, discussed how to work with Groves to tell stories such as theirs throughout the Communion.

The Primates Meeting at Dromantine, Ireland, in February 2005 asked the Anglican Consultative Council “to take positive steps to initiate the listening and study process” which has been the subject of resolutions at Lambeth Conferences since at least 1978 (Lambeth 1978, Resolution 10).

Groves told ENS that he was excited by his time with the Integrity group. “They are a group of people who are delighted to be involved with the wider communion … and they are a group of people committed to talking about Jesus and the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” he said. “Not everyone will agree with them. They don’t always agree with one another, but their voices are committed to the wider church.”
