"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

Star-Telegram Article on Recent FW Actions

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram ran an article today that discusses recent actions by the Standing Committee of the diocese of Fort Worth withdrawing us from Province 7 of the Episcopal Church (pending ratification by diocesan convention shortly). Here is an excerpt:

Where does the Fort Worth Diocese go if it leaves Province 7?
"It's hard to say," said Suzanne Gill, a diocesan spokeswoman. "Dioceses cannot be included in a province without consent.
"We are opting out. We have not opted to go anywhere."
Many are calling for the creation of a separate, nongeographical province for conservative Episcopalians, Gill said. The resolution notes that U.S. conservatives have asked for alternative "pastoral and apostolic care to biblically orthodox Anglicans in this country regardless of geographical location."
