Living Church:  Fort Worth to Vote on Southern Cone Ties

Posted by Kendall Harmon

A member diocese of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) will consider a resolution that maintains the diocese’s ties with the Anglican Church of the Southern Cone.

The resolution is being proposed by the Diocese of Fort Worth’s standing committee. The diocese’s convention will meet on Nov. 6 and 7 in Arlington, Texas. The resolution commits the diocese to continued participation in the ACNA, but also “maintains its status as a member diocese in the Province of the Southern Cone while the formal process of recognition of [ACNA] continues in the Anglican Communion.”

“At this point, the Anglican Church in North America is not yet fully recognized as a province of the Anglican Communion,” the standing committee said in an explanation. “We are working towards that goal, but it is a lengthy process involving the primates, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the Anglican Consultative Council.”

More noteworthy than the headline here, I thought, was the part buried at the bottom of the TLC article, noting that the “reconstituted” or rump Diocese of Pittsburgh is apparently seeking to merge with the Diocese of NW Penn.  Not at all surprising.
