The Windsor Report is intentionally arch in saying that Hong Kong brought
the issue for discussion. Hong Kong brought a fait accompli, much as TEC
has done in this instance. Bishop Hall ordained Li Tim Oi as the first
woman Anglican priest during WW2 to serve in Macau. Then Lambeth
nattered about it. They're still nattering about it.
I am grateful that God didn't wait for the world to come to
theological consensus about incarnation prior to Mary's pregnancy.
