For those who have an interest in a rogues gallery of the invading army of bishops, here are pictures of the gang of twelve or thirteen, bishops belonging to either Common Cause Partners or the "International Conference," and who are directly connected to other Provinces of the Communion. (corrected 7/5) The International Conference lists 25 congregations in the Uganda circuit, 39 in the Southern Cone (many with Bolivia and the breakaway group claiming to be Recife), 12 in the Kenya circuit, and one registered with Rwanda. (Total: 77 congregations.) Bishops or bishops-elect for this group are Atwood, Murdoch, Guernsey, Fairfield, and Cox. CANA lists 30 and AMiA lists 114 congregations. Bishops for this group include Rodgers, Barnam, Johnson, Minns, Green, Murphy, Bena and Weiss.
Bishop Cox, well retired, is listed as the "on site" bishop for the Southern Cone. The primary lead however is taken by the Bishop of Bolivia, who seems to have considerable time on his hands, and oversees twenty-two of the parishes listed. The gang: Rodgers, Barnam, Atwood, Johnson, Minns, Green, Murphy, Guernsey, Bena, Fairfield, Murdoch, Weiss, Cox.
All of these people will be on board in time for the meeting of the "Council of Bishops" in September. Hold on to your miters. The effort to blow up The Episcopal Church will be billed as the work of the Holy Spirit. It will be hard to tell with this crowd, none of whom were elected by the constituencies they purport to serve. The claim that this gang is doing the will of the Holy Spirit may turn out to be flat out wrong. Instead of the wind of God it may simply be the blast of egos who confuse the episcopate for community in Christ.
