"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

NPR coverage of recent events at TEC's General Convention

National Public Radio has a good report on the recent vote by the Episcopal Church's General Convention here.

While I am no longer a member of TEC, and hence a bit insulated from the full emotional impact of this development now, I remain a priest of the Anglican Communion (through my diocese's link to the Province of the Southern Cone of the Americas) and still am very much concerned about the effect this will have on world-wide Anglicanism. I hope it will hasten recognition of the Anglican Church in North America by more Anglican bodies around the globe. (If you have not already seen this story, the Church of England will take up ACNA recognition in February thanks to signatures collected from more than a quarter of the delegates to its provincial synod.)
