New Anglican Province: 12/03/2008

So this past Saturday I was going to write up a post about the diocese of Fort Worth voting to leave the Episcopal Church (the vote, by the way, was again overwhelming: 73-20 among clergy and 98-28 in the lay order). But then this bombshell arrived in my inbox:

It seems that +Iker wasn’t kidding about the new province being “up and running” by the start of next year. If everything goes according to plan, the Common Cause Partnership “will release to the public on the evening of Dec. 3 the draft constitution of an emerging Anglican Church in North America, formally subscribe to the Jerusalem Declaration of the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) and affirm the GAFCON Statement on the Global Anglican Future at an evening worship celebration in suburban Chicago”.

Wow! I thought this day would never come! Bless the good people at Common Cause, GAFCON, and everyone else who made this great day happen!
