Reports and reflections abound as bishops weigh in on last week's meeting of the House of Bishops in Texas. I had it in mind to put a page together with links to all of them floating out there in cyberspace but the details of parish life and Holy Week Hovering on the Horizon kind of bumped that off my "to do" list.
So if anyone else has done so and someone wants to point me to it that would be grand ... but in the meantime DO check out these reflections from +Jim Kelsey (Northern Michigan) which offer the best "play by play" account of this important meeting, with this conclusion:
In my opinion, what finally passed is a strong statement about who we are and where we are prepared to stand. We do intend to continue relationships with Anglicans world-wide, in whatever official or unofficial capacity might be possible. We have no idea how the Primates or the ACC will respond ... Now it is time to move ahead with God's work of redemption. Hopefully it will be in partnership with others throughout the Anglican Communion. The extent to which others are ready to keep in partnership with us has yet to be seen - - but that we are prepared to step out in faith and with courage and determination to celebrate God's liberating work in our midst and in the world, have no doubt.
