Christian Today: ‘We’re sorry you’re not here,’ Anglican Archbishop tells conservatives

Maria Mackay writes:

The Archbishop of Canterbury said on Monday that the hundreds of conservative bishops boycotting the Lambeth Conference would have helped heal divisions in the Anglican Communion had they decided to take part.

Speaking to journalists on the first official day of business, Dr Rowan Williams said his message to the around 210 absent bishops was: “We’re sorry you’re not here.”

“The great pity is that to have those voices in the discussion as we conceived it would have been a healing and a helpful thing,” he said.
