Today, I am told, the Episcopal Church's House of Deputies rejected any attempt to apologize to the Anglican Communion for electing actively homosexual bishops and blessing same-sex unions. Rather bold.
The other two Episcopal dioceses which reject women's ordination, Quincy and San Joaquin, are meeting shortly to consider joining Fort Worth's request for alternative primatial oversight.
One well-informed reader emailed:
"It's a good thing the Holy Spirit is protecting the church because the Vatican clearly has no sense of timing. If they acted now, as ultra-conservative Anglo-Catholic dioceses are jumping ship, they could instantly have a robust Anglican Rite."
I know she's right.
And I wish the Vatican would.
But I don't think it will. (heavy sigh)
