David Virtue who has been attending the Anglican Mission in the Americas (AMiA) Winter Meeting writes that at the Winter Conference three new bishops were being ordained.
"They include the Rev. Terrell Glenn, rector of All Saints Church, Pawleys Island, SC; the Rev. Philip Jones, rector of St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Little Rock, Arkansas; and the Rev. John Miller, rector of Prince of Peace Anglican Church, Melbourne, Florida. "I believe they will bring additional strength to the Anglican Mission's Council of Bishops as we seek to break into new territory and reach out to the 130 million unchurched in North America," said Murphy. The AMIA will now have seven missionary bishops serving more than 133 parishes with 62 in the pipeline.
Hands will be laid on them by the entire House of Bishops of the Province of Rwanda which has written a new constitution that includes the AMIA as an intrinsic part of the province that can never be eliminated.
Following their consecration, the new bishops will continue to serve as rectors (senior pastors) of their respective congregations while assuming the added responsibilities of a missionary bishop. They will join Bishops Murphy, Thad Barnum, Sandy Greene and T.J. Johnston as members of the Anglican Mission Council of Bishops."
The AMiA website has not yet published the names of the bishops.
The interesting note is that there is a new constitution in Rwanda that "includes the AMiA as an intrinsic part of the province that can never be eliminated." That being the case the Province of Rwanda stands condemned by its clear violation of the Windsor Report and all following assurances by the various intruding Provinces that this was somehow a stopgap on the way for rescue purposes.
I would suppose tha the Moderator of the Common Cause Partnership might also be on the lookout... if AMiA is an "intrinsic part of the province that can never be eliminated" then there is no future of AMiA in a federation on its way to being a united (so called) orthodox province in North America. Rwanda has intervened and is here to stay, it appears.
The Common Cause blurb from AMiA says this - NOTHING.
They are not going to anti up friends. So the CCP that was boasting nine members now is eight and on its way to seven. Of those who will be left by the time June and July come?
