ACNA Canons Comment Period

The Anglican Church in North America has published a complete set of provisional canons to be acted upon by the Leadership Council on April 24th and 25th. There is now a comment period (for those in the ACNA I presume) through April 23rd.

The announcement and the links to said canons may be found here.

And, yes, I do intend to give these a good examination.

Proposed Canons:
I notice a funny imbalance in that ppg. 19-27 attempt to cross every 't' and dot every 'i' concerning courts but they could leave that for later consideration/development. they seem hesitant, or unwilling, to include a similar qualification upon Deacon and Priest as they have upon Bishop....
Be a male Presbyter at least 35 years old;

do you know if they still claim to address that issue down the road?

I wish I could claim to be that in the know, but I'm not. :)

BTW, I looked over the Constitution this morning (not the canons yet) and am impressed.
