From the Press Release of the GAFCON meeting:
"The primates' council will initially be formed by the six Anglican primates participating in the GAFCON from Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Southern Cone, Uganda and West Africa. Also the Anglican Church of Tanzania delegation to GAFCON is in agreement with the statement but will need the endorsement of their House of Bishops before their archbishop join the council."
The sign on was quick, with the ink on the GAFCON statement barely dry and the vote by acclimation still ringing in their ears.
Various voices from the West were heard: Archbishop Peter Jensen in particular, but also Archbishop Venables. Interestingly Bishop Martin Minns seems nowhere to be seen. May we suppose that he was in the back room writing away? The reporters at GAFCON have done a pretty good job of telling us about the surface, but what has gone on behind the scenes? Who did the writing work?
And of course the absence of Bishop Duncan is well noted. Remembering that the Global South Primates asked that the North American realignment community choose a spokes person, and that they named the Bishop of Pittsburgh and Moderator of the Common Cause Partnership as that leader, my guess is that the Primates Council will meet soon, perhaps even today, and acknowledge Bishop Duncan as the Primate of the new Province in North America. He will then be able to come forward having clearly been away from the fray and not involved in his own elevation, etc.
Then again, like the Mad Pries, I could be wrong. (Glad the MP is back on line.)
