So here it is friends: The Anglican Communion Network published a statement about the much trumpeted Common Cause Partnership Council of Bishops meeting. The publicity on that meeting announced that "A total of 51 bishops and bishops-elect representing tens-of-thousands of Anglicans in North America are meeting together Sept. 25–28 in Pittsburgh, PA." Later the ACN gave a listing of those in attendance, saying that it was "An incomplete list of bishops present at the Common Cause Council of Bishops. We plan to finalize this list in the very near future." That list gave 44 names. That list was published no later than September 28th.
So now, three weeks later the list is no longer and uncorrected. So, is that it? Were there really only 44 bishops present, and of them only 39 representing the Common Cause Partnership as active CCP bishops? If so it is a considerable stretch to continue to claim 51 bishops present. If not, where is the revision?
Unless there is anything posted to the contrary let the history of the event read that there were 39 CCP bishops and a few additional interested bishops present.
Here is what I posted on September 28th.
"39 of the bishops or bishops elect known to be part of the Common Cause Partnership were there. Two new bishops from the Federation of Anglican Churches, five retired bishops and one bishop of a diocese not part of the Network were there (8). There were four other clergy present.
There never were Bishop Iker's sixty bishops. For that matter, at the moment, the ACN seems to have lost its notes and there were not even 51 bishops and bishops elect there. At the moment they list 44. There were indeed other people there. It is reported that someone from San Joaquin represented the Diocese. But this was not a meeting of dioceses and jurisdictions, it was billed as a council of bishops, and as a conclave."
Barring further word I am signing off on this now.
