"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Pittsburgh Resolutions of November 4th

The diocese of Pittsburgh has passed an interesting resolution at its diocesan convention. The most significant portion indicates:

"should the 76th General Convention determine to continue its 'walk apart' from the Anglican Communion – by its failure to accept unreservedly the Windsor Report and its corollary documents or to commit to a church life consonant with them – the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh will stand with all Anglican Churches, Dioceses and Provinces that hold and maintain the ‘Historic Faith, Doctrine, Sacrament and Discipline of the one Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church’ whatever the costs or actions required to do so"

The vote was by orders. For the clergy order, 85 voted in favor, 12 against, and nine abstained. For the lay order, 118 voted in favor, 45 against, and six abstained. Hat tip to TitusOneNine.
