Middle East Presiding Bishop Bows out of GAFCON

[VirtueOnline] 21 May 2008--The Most Revd Mouneer Anis, Presiding Bishop of Jerusalem and the Middle East has written a letter saying that he will not be attending GAFCON, a fellowship of some 1,000 orthodox "pilgrim" Anglicans meeting in Amman and Jerusalem next month, and urged their leaders to build "parallel processes among those loyal to the biblical historic faith and ethics in both the South and the North."

In the letter (see below) Mouneer says his reason for pulling out were personal and do not reflect the "whole Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East."
