6 Episcopal Church Bishops visit Justin Welby out of Concern for the Anglican mess in America

Posted by Kendall Harmon

...It is our vocation as Communion Partners to navigate this narrow path between two dangerous extremes as we pursue the mission of the Church “to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.”To that end, six Communion Partner bishops (Greg Brewer, Paul Lambert, Ed Little, Dan Martins, Ed Salmon and Michael Smith) made a visit to Archbishop Justin Welby at his residence in Canterbury, England last week.

There we prayed together and discussed a range of issues concerning the Anglican Communion and The Episcopal Church. Also present was the Archbishop’s Director of Reconciliation, Canon David Porter.

I think we may assume that the silence on the gravity of the situation is out of respect for the confidentiality of the talks. A lot of these gatherings took place during the Williams era. The notion of forming a group of confessing parishes and dioceses is said to have come out of one such session. The new ABC is now the titular head of two different ecclesiastical organizations. At some point with too much walking of a middle road he may well find he has few companions.
