+Carey Opts Out of DC Conference

Interesting news from "across the pond" -- The following is a statement from Lord George Carey, the 103rd Archbishop of Canterbury:

It is with great regret that I have had to cancel my visit to the Future of Anglicanism conference in Washington this weekend. Since General Convention earlier this month there have been a number of developments in the Episcopal Church of the United States of America and increasing pressures on the unity of the Anglican Communion.

I understand from Lambeth Palace that talks between the Archbishop of Canterbury and ECUSA leaders are ongoing and delicate. It is for these reasons, and in order to support the office and ministry of the Archbishop of Canterbury, that I have made my decision.

Read it all here and continue to keep the church and the communion in your prayers. (Remember the good old days when things "slowed down" during the summer?!)

Is it me, or do others notice that Lord Carey looks like a twin to Mr. Rumbold from the British TV comedy "Are you being served?"

Twins separated at birth?

Was it just me or did Mr. Rumbold always have something against Mr. Humphries?
