Our brochure was a tri-fold affair on glossy white paper:

What Would an Ideal Anglican Communion Look Like?

The Anglican Covenant would re-engineer the Anglican Communion. But the Anglican Communion was never really engineered to begin with. Instead, it developed in fits and starts with no planning as to what a “mature” Anglican Communion should look like.

Encouraging the Communion to avoid making the serious mistake of adopting the proposed Anglican Covenant has been satisfying, but Anglicans really should be asking what an ideal Anglican Communion would look like. What would we want to create if we were beginning from scratch?

Do readers have any ideas to contribute? What should be the underlying principles of an ideal Anglican Communion? How should those principles be incorporated into particular structures and processes?
