ACNA stirring.

The American Anglican Council is sponsoring a conference in Georga, March 26-28. The brochure states, that this is

"A conference to equip churches within the Southeast region of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) with practical teaching and tools to fulfill the Great Commission. The goal of this conference is to develop healthy, missional Anglican churches in the ACNA, raise up new ministry leaders in each church, build stronger relationships among churches within our Southeast region, and missional partnerships that will enable us to bring unchurched people into the Kingdom of God!"


The thing to note about this conference is that it is billed as "within the Southeast Region of the Anglican Church in North America."(ACNA)

ACNA is a "province in formation" but more it is an entity that is written about as if it were a formed entity in the present, one that be described as having a "Southeast region." ACNA is not waiting until summer to proclaim its existence. It is off and running.

The American Anglican Council is part of ACNA (or at least its leadership is), so they must know. If AAC says ACNA is a done deal it most be so.

So much for any slow down about developing this particular entity. The only issue is who will they relate to, how and why.

    You might take a look at the January newsletter for St. David's Church (formerly St. David's Episcopal Church, No. Hollywood, CA, Diocese of Los Angeles). Their website is:
    http://www.stdavidsnh.org/

    and there is a link on that front page to the newsletter. There are some interesting articles about the Calif. Supreme Court decision, and about the formation of ACNA.

    Some of this info might help fill in some of the gaps regarding what ACNA is up to.
