It is good when questions get asked and answers follow:
Thinking Anglicans asked if the Diocese of Dallas was seeking any sort of Alternative Primatial Oversight, and tonight (Thursday October 26) TA found an answer. It seems according to the Church of the Ascension web page that, "Bishop Stanton further said that he acknowledges and accepts that Bishop Katharine Jefferts-Schori is the duly elected Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church. Further, he has not and will not ask the Archbishop of Canterbury for oversight from an Anglican leader instead of being under the umbrella of the American church."
Let us hope that that answers that question!
It would appear that my muttering and mild mustard application was perhaps too harsh a suspicion. Pleasae forgive me. The Hot Dogma will have to be eaten without fixings.
Thank you Thinking Anglicans.
Earlier I asked about just who the Primates consulting with the eight diocesans seeking Alternative Primatial Oversight were and when they were going to meet. The Living Church is on the case. The answer is:The Most Rev. Peter Akinola, Primate of Nigeria; the Most Rev. Drexel Gomez, Primate of the West Indies; the Most Rev. Benjamin Nzimbi, Primate of Kenya; and the Most Rev. Justice Akrofi, Primate of West Africa. The Rev. George Conger, one of TLC's ace reporters, also told us where - Falls Church, Virginia.
Interestingly these four Primates are on the Anglican Relief and Development board, a subsidiary of the Anglican Communion Network. So it is a meeting of Primates already up to their eyeballs in realignment matters.
The claim is that their conversations will not preempt the Primates meeting in February. We will see.
Thank you TLC, and thank you George.
