This report states that the ACNA is a province in the Anglican Communion. Is that so? The HOB/D posters don’t seem to think so.

Some churches of the Anglican Communion are in communion with the ACNA and not with TEC; others including Canterbury are in communion with TEC and not ACNA.

#3, Sarah, the author is a member of St. Paul’s Anglican in Bakersfield and is the chair of their communications committee. I don’t think he got it wrong, but chose to characterize ACNA as a province in the Anglican Communion.
It is not my intention to either debate or defend that characterization, but it does not appear to be due to lack of familiarity with the alphabet soup that North American Anglicanism seems to have become.

Well, certainly anybody may say anything they like about what organizations they belong to in what identity.
