The PB didn’t say the property task force was the church out of control; +Bruce said this about the task force. She only stated that she hasn’t provided for their continued operation. Here are my corrections I’ve made:
Another element of tension – property – Task force on same. Five bishops and three consulting bishops. Started by Griswold. Maintained active profile; however, PB does not recognized them as a body, she is quick to state she has never provided for them to continue, yet they continue to operate. Discussion came up and she made this comment; “This sadly is another sign of the church out of control. ”
So what did happen at convention? Actually quite a bit happened, and some of it was pretty positive. First, our bishop, though obviously quite contemplative during the convention Eucharist and the opening business session (and clearly focused upon what he was going to include in his convention address) quite boldly stood squarely on the side of “doing the right thing” and standing firm in upholding the constitution and canons of TEC against the blatant abuses of power by the Presiding Bishop of TEC, her chancellor and the House of Bishops. Knowing full well that the PB’s eyes and ears were present in our convention hall, your bishop stood tall and not only outlined the abuses of power that have occurred in three recent depositions of orthodox bishops, but declared that these types of abuses must be opposed and stopped. In the Alice in Wonderland world that is TEC at this time, this action is no small thing.
