10 Bishops for AMiA, and no protest from Canterbury
Now there are 10 usurper bishops in The Anglican Mission in the Americas (AMiA), ten bishops part of the newly forming Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) that will have in it now at least 42 bishops. Some of the bishops in ACNA are deposed or resigned from The Episcopal Church or the Anglican Church of Canada, but many more come by way of the Churches in Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda. Bishops from these four Provinces are set apart precisely for missionary work in the United States and Canada contrary to the expressed wishes of the Windsor Report, against the long standing rule that bishops should not exercise their ministry except in their own diocese without permission of the bishop of jurisdiction. The fact that these Churches have sent these bishops is evidence that either the Primates or the synods of bishops that constitute their houses of bishops are not in communion with The Episcopal Church or the Anglican Church of Canada. These bishops are either usurpers or so clearly out of communion with the churches of jurisdiction in the Anglican Communion as to not be part of the Anglican Communion.
The Anglican Communion is not at present a group of 38 Provinces in communion. To continue to insist that it is is a fabrication and wishful thinking.
The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Anglican Consultative Council have acted shamefully in not challenging the inclusion representatives of the Churches in Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Nigeria, given the blatant disregard by these churches of past and present demands that they stop such incursions.
The AMiA is considered by the ACNA to have about 22,000 people average Sunday attendance in 180 congregations. With 10 bishops that makes about 2,200 persons per bishop and about 18 congregations per bishop. How many of those were ever members of TEC or ACoC is hard to tell. Their mission objective is to reached unchurched people. In the Anglican Church in North America they will contribute about 1/4 of all the bishops.
AMiA is not the issue. Rwanda is. AMiA is not part of the Anglican Communion. Its bishops did not attend Lambeth. Rwanda is. So it is Rwanda that is accountable, but no one seems to care.
