Canadian and African Anglican theologians correspond about sexuality

From Anglican Church of Canada News:

Dr. Kawuki (Isaac) Mukasa, General Synod’s coordinator for dialogue, paired up dioceses during two trips to Africa, including visits to South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda from July 31 to Aug. 21. Mr. Mukasa, a native Ugandan, considers this work essential to improving communication within the Anglican Communion, which is divided over the place of gays and lesbians in the church.

The dioceses currently in conversation are:

-The dioceses of Central Tanganyika and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) with the Diocese of Niagara

-The Diocese of Mombasa (Kenya) with the Diocese of Ottawa

-The dioceses of Cape Town (South Africa) and Tanga (Tanzania) with the Diocese of Toronto

-The Diocese of Botswana (Botswana) with the Diocese of Ontario

However, it has not all been smooth sailing. Mr. Mukasa attempted to include the Diocese of Nairobi and at least one diocese of Uganda in the conversation but their leaders did not want to participate.
