Colin Sibley:

Feels an increasing sene of unease. Supports the motion as it would othewise mean closing the door. Wants us to be clear that this does not mean that we will sign up in the end.

Asks if this creates a second class of communion membership which would lead to a split in communion.

Also a danger of creating a stronger set of ties. loose ties mean flexibility. Strong ties more likely to break under stress.

The cure (covenant) may prove more distructive than the problem.

Also we will be unable to do anything unless everyone agrees. We would never have been able to ordain women yuner the covenant.

|We should not be afriad to contemplate separation within the communion.

The Anglican Church itself was the result of a split.
