Bosco Peters, the Anglican New Zealand priest who writes the Liturgy blog, has declared January 27, 2013 – February 3, 2013, the Week of Prayer for Christian Diversity. The octave of prayer for diversity is analogous to the established Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Unity in the Anglican Communion is taken by some to require uniformity, and Peters’ newly declared week is intended to promote the acceptability of the notion of unity in diversity. His blog post on his declaration is here, and the logo he has designed to celebrate Christian diversity is shown below.
This is the blog of the No Anglican Covenant Coalition, an international group of Anglicans who oppose the adoption of the Anglican Covenant. This blog will post news about our Web site and provide a forum to discuss the proposed Anglican Covenant.

|“South Park” Malcolm|
from Simple Massing Priest blog
The Rev. Malcolm French, the No Anglican Covenant Coalition moderator, noting that he has not written anything about the Covenant since he blogged from the General Convention of The Episcopal Church last summer, has now published a post on his blog titled “Time for the new broom to sweep clean.” In it, Malcolm offers an evaluation of where the Covenant stands in January 2013. He stops short of asking Justin Welby, the new Archbishop of Canterbury, to sign the death certificate (or, perhaps, death warrant) of the Covenant, but he observes that the Covenant “staggers on like some dessicated zombie or reflection-free nosferatu.”
