Communique from the ACNA College of Bishops

Posted by Kendall Harmon

There was deep, honest, and profound conversation among the bishops as the College pursued Biblical patterns of reconciliation. There were apologies, conversations, tears and prayers for healing. One result was the restoration of Bishops Thad Barnum, Terrell Glenn and Todd Hunter back into full fellowship of the College.

Meeting in consecrated space, the College also approved the consecrations of the Rev. Quigg Lawrence (Atlantic Regional Network of PEARUSA), the Rev. Ken Ross (Western Regional Network of PEARUSA), the Very Rev. Clark Lowenfield (ACNA Diocese of the Western Gulf Coast in Formation).

In addition, the College confirmed the election of the Rt. Rev. Charlie Masters as Bishop Coadjutor of the Anglican Network in Canada, and received into the College the Rt. Rev. Frank Lyons, former Bishop of Bolivia, as Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Pittsburgh.

Good to see that ACNA is continuing the process of analysing and reviewing its diocesan organisation.  This will take a lot of work over many years.  The difficulties of forging a new province out of so many constituent parts are immense.

“The report on overlapping dioceses brought into focus both the excitement of the growth of this new missionary province in North America and the challenges of bringing us into conformity with historic Anglican practice. The goal of the work is to organize each region for the long-term sustainability of the movement in recognizable, godly Anglican Church structures.”

Wise, but very difficult to put into practice.  May the Lord bless their work.
