Religion & Ethics Newsweekly had this story covering the ECUSA House of Bishops meeting last week. It is one of the best summaries I have seen so far. You can either watch the video or read the transcript. The reporter summarized it well:
LAWTON: Well, in fact no new policy was set at this meeting. The U.S. Episcopal bishops restated the situation that’s been in play in their church for the last couple of years. They may have said it a little more clearly, which is what I think a lot of people in the Anglican Communion were looking for, but they have not set any new policy. For the conservatives I think, though, this was a line in the sand. This was a moment they were looking for, and it seems like it’s a point of no return for them, and so it seems to have solidified a lot of the decisions that many people were considering anyway.
Now to see what Lambeth and the Anglican Communion do, will there be any response?
