Agreement is a good thing - isn't it?

Maybe being English, we think of making agreements as fundamentally good as providing channels for discussion. However when that agreement binds you into ways which lead you into different ways of communicating where the presuppositions behind the agreement only seem to want to exclude than hard questions need to be asked rather than rushing into a warm feeling that we have something new in common.
These thoughts are sparked by reading the announcement of the launch of the No Anglican Covenant Coalition - I recommend a visit!
The Church mouse on the covenant is also worth a read

Wise words indeed. I will try to be awake in time for Lesley's interview tomorrow.
