"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

St. Vincent's to be in the Spotlight Again

The Anglican Communion Network will be holding its third Annual Council at St. Vincent's Cathedral at the end of July. We were honored to host the first such Council three years ago, and I am glad these good folks will be returning. I was fortunate enough to be a gofer at the first meeting, but unfortunately I will still be in Wisconsin attending Nashotah House's summer session while this meeting is taking place. Since this is the last major gathering of the Network before the September 30th deadline for TEC to repent and amend its ways, this promises to be a very important event.

The Most Rev. Greg Venables, Archbishop of the Southern Cone, will be the Council's Bible teacher. (As readers of this blog will know, I admire this man of God a very great deal. I so wish I could hear him teach this summer!)

The photo above is of fourteen bishops (from both the Network and three continuing churches) concelebrating during the closing Solemn Choral Eucharist at St. Vincent's at the end of the first Annual Council meeting in 2005.

I don't think "repent and amend its ways" is how the primates' communiqué states what is asked of the Episcopal Church by Sept. 30.
