As Bishop Alexander said we are working on a document that will offer a good respnose

Question: Is there a consensus and what is it

Bruno: we have agreed that we need to haev a statement that responds with clarity. IT must be clear and unambiguous and we are working in that direction. We really do intend to come out wiht a statement that will speak clearly to the communion and to the church.

Bruno: Nothing is sidetracked. tHere have been several different methods set forth for our response and there is debate about that. But it is importatn that it be clear.
