    Abstract

    Traditional Anglican structures have developed little beyond provincial
    level That has reflected an underlying provincial ecclesiology of
    disciplined order sufficient to provide a ministry of word and sacraments
    that is both catholic and apostolic It has also embodied a practical
    recognition of the limits of workable connection This is reflected in the
    persistent refusal of successive Lambeth Conferences to see themselves
    as a disciplinary body and their affirmations of provincial autonomy
    As a consequence when we have had to deal with global Communion
    issues of order we have not had extensive ecclesiological precedent Our
    history has not prepared us to handle such conflicts with confidence
