The Spiritual Context of the Windsor Report

Steven Charleston

If the Windsor Report is not only an ecclesiological or theological document, what is it? This article places the Report into both the historic and biblical contexts of Anglican spirituality. In doing so, this essay answers three essential questions about the foundation, function, and future of the Windsor Report. Using scriptural reference points, the article claims a "common ground" that the church can use in developing a meaningful dialogue for reconciliation and unity. Servanthood, forgiveness, and discernment are presented as the three categories for conversation that persons from "any point on the compass" can engage to put the Windsor Report to work on the local parish or diocesan level.
