Joint ACC, Primates Steering Committee Meets

[The Living Church] 26 Nov 2008--The Joint Steering Committee (JSC) of primates and representatives of the Anglican Consultative Council (ACC) are holding an important planning meeting in London this week in advance of forthcoming meetings of the primates in February in Alexandria, Egypt, and of the ACC in Jamaica in May.

Approval for a possible second province in North America expected to be on the agenda for the primates’ meeting as well as the ACC gathering.

All the primates who are attending this "planning meeting" are liberals.

Cozy picture of Rowan and Katherine. I am reminded of the Presiding Bishop's statement after her first meeting with the Archbishop of Canterbury. She told Episcopalians that Williams had assured her that The Episcopal Church would not be expelled from the Anglican Communion. After his meeting with the House of Bishops in New Orleans it was clear that Williams not going to countenance any kind of disciplinary action against TEC. The 2008 Lambetrh Conference was further evidence of that. But if he countenances disciplinary action against Southern Cone, it will confirm what some of have recognized for a long time: Williams is really on the side of TEC and not Biblically orthodox Anglicans.
