Resolutions Arose From Bishops’ Concern Over Pastoral Council Nominations

[The Living Church] 22 Mar 2007--The House of Bishops’ rejection of a pastoral council is not The Episcopal Church’s final word on the primates’ communiqué, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said during a telephone conference call with reporters on March 21.

The conference occurred during an afternoon break on the final day of the spring House of Bishops’ meeting at Camp Allen near Navasota, Texas.

“This was merely a recommendation for Executive Council to reject it,” she said. The church’s formal response would not come until September, after a series of town-hall style meetings and consultation across The Episcopal Church, she said.
