Ali Symons reports for the Anglican Church of Canada:

General Synod has released a series of seven video interviews with Canadian and African bishops, capturing the highlights from the Toronto meeting of the Consultation of Anglican Bishops in Dialogue, June 2012.

The consultation is a fluid group of bishops — from Canada, the U.S., and various African countries — who seek to build common understanding and respect among different parts of the Anglican Communion. It began at the 2008 Lambeth Conference, at a time of great tension within the Anglican Communion over issues of same-sex unions and larger questions of scriptural interpretation.

At Lambeth, Archbishop Colin Johnson of Toronto and the Rev. Canon Dr. Isaac Kawuki Mukasa, a Ugandan-Canadian, began conversations with African bishops. African and Canadian dioceses then gradually started theological correspondence, first on human sexuality and later mission.
