Anglican head to attend 'pink summit' in U.S. ahead of controversial vote


[Canada.com] 17 Apr 2007--Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury and leader of the worldwide Anglican Communion, will meet with bishops of the U.S. Episcopal Church later this year in a last ditch effort to avert complete schism over homosexuality, an issue that's "tearing us apart."

"These are complicated days for our church, and it's all the more important internationally to keep up relationships," Williams told a news conference during a day-long visit to Toronto on Monday.

"The loss of union is not just the loss of some institutional fiction. It's a wound in an organism."
