“As we prepare for the 2020 Lambeth Conference, this conference at Nashotah House is poised to help focus not only the right questions for the Lambeth Conference but also indicate coherent ways forward for the Communion,” Wells said. “One hundred years ago, Lambeth 1920 launched an ‘Appeal to All Christian People’ that was heard round the world and helped to set the agenda both for Anglicans and the wider ecumenical movement. With the Anglican Covenant in hand, Lambeth 2020 has a chance to do something similar, with farther-reaching, longer-lasting consequences.”
