"Rather than call for responses from individual Episcopalians, Parsley said the committee will in late August and early September gather input from bishops on the result of their conversations in their dioceses.
He said the committee hopes that Episcopalians will "read, mark, inwardly digest and then come talk" about the document with their bishop.
"Every diocese will have to do that in their own way," he said. "We didn't want it to be an individual thing. We wanted it to be a diocesan, corporate process overseen by the bishop."
Parsley said the corporate nature of the conversations is important, given the nature of the requests made by the Primates at the end of their February gathering in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania via a communique."
So it appears there is no exam due. Rather we wait for some sort of diocesan activity in each diocese, done in the summer months when bishops are on vacation and parishes in summer mode.
Meanwhile, having read the document I am not sure the questions reach very far into the issues of Dar Es Salaam.
More on that later.
Meanwhile, relax. Exams are off - after you respond to the Draft Covenant.
