Make Sure You Check All the News on the ACN Council Meeting; As Well As Other News

StandFirm is having excellent coverage.

You also need to check out the latest words from Archbishop Drexel Gomez regarding the future of the Communion. Here is a summary:

*Same-sex relations relate to God’s ordering of life and therefore core doctrine
*Little prospect of Primates’ Meeting after September 30 – ACO will plead lack of money
*Individual provinces may derecognise TEC
*Possible new US Province
*People in TEC want to root out traditional Anglicanism
*Global South see Lambeth downgraded to expensive prelatical training course
*Boycott by Nigeria alone (120 bishops) would make a big difference
*Lambeth decisions will not be representative of the thinking of the Communion
*ABC’s threat to rescind some invitations to Lambeth widely discounted

I think Gomez is right in that Lambeth will be the ultimate showdown. I think it a foregone conclusion that the House of Bishops will reject the Primates Communique in New Orleans. Hopefully, the Primates will force the ABC to call another Primates Meeting to respond to the same this fall.
