Bishop Robinson on the Anglican Communion

(I have 10 mins for this before a scheduled outage at 11pm on the server).

Bishop Robinson cited Liberating Jonah: Forming an Ethics of Reconciliation by Miguel de la Torre (Orbis books out in November) arguing that the paradigm of Jonah is helpful: Jonah leaves Nineveh at the end of the book before reconciliation can take place. Both oppressor and oppressed need each other for reconciliation.

He longs to meet with his detractors in the Anglican communion to speak of his love for Jesus and the redemptive action of Jesus in his life. When asked about the listening process and Lambeth he said that the greatest sin is to walk away from the table and while does not know what will happen at Lambeth in 2008, he looks to God for a way to bring us all together.
