Chicago Consultation on Archbishop of Canterbury’s Retirement

March 16, 2012:  “For the past nine years, Rowan Williams has struggled with earnest authenticity to lead the Anglican Communion through difficult times. We wish him well in his new position as master of Magdalene College, Cambridge, and look forward to the fruits of his considerable intellectual and academic gifts.

“During Archbishop Rowan’s tenure, he was often at odds with the Episcopal Church over its efforts to include lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Christians more fully in the life of the Church. We regret the friction that has existed between him and our church, and look forward to working with him and his successor toward an Anglican Communion bound together by an ever-deepening commitment to shared ministry between parishes, dioceses and provinces, and ever-greater respect of the gifts and vocations of each of its members.”
