It is quite long and much needs careful studying but my immediate reaction at 5.31 pm Wednesday 14 May 2014 is that this is liveable and preserves broadly the boundaries I have argued for: that the doctrine of marriage is not changed but blessings
GOOD INTENTIONS: A commenter has noticed this phrase in my title and rightly wondered why it is used because it is commonly associated with 'the road to hell is paved with good intentions.' I suggest that the road to heaven is also paved with good intentions. In our case it remains possible that where we end up, in four or more years time is "hell", or "heaven" or somewhere in between. The good intentions include, the intention to secure and maintain a place for conservatives in our church, the intention to offer a way of blessing same-sex partnerships, the intention to hold our church together across geographic jurisdictions as well as across episcopal jurisdictions, and the intention to move forward in a reasonable time frame.
That is quite a few 'good intentions'!
