... in this reply to an inquiry regarding the upcoming "September Summit" from a colleague (shared with permission):
Thank you for your email. Its contents have been carefully noted. The meeting in September to which you refer has been convened precisely so that bishops who are asking for alternative primatial oversight can meet with their current primate and his successor to determine from within the Episcopal Church the best way forward. While the Archbishop of Canterbury had a role in establishing this meeting, and will be represented at it by the Secretary General of the Anglican Communion, it is intended to allow the Episcopal Church to reach its own conclusions, and does not represent any independent action by the Archbishop of Canterbury at all.
You may like to read Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold's recent comment on the meeting, which you will find here.
Do please join with us in praying for the well-being of the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion and that God's will for all God's children may be clearly known and heeded.
G K Cameron
Deputy Secretary General
Anglican Communion Office
