[The Living Church] 14 Feb 2009--The Common Cause Partnership, seeking official recognition as a North American province of the Anglican Communion, welcomes the primates’ proposal for professionally mediated conversation, said Bishop David Anderson of the American Anglican Council.
“Since the orthodox Anglicans who left [The Episcopal Church] have been talked about at length by the Lambeth powers but not talked to officially or ‘on the record’, it would be nice to sit down and tell it like it is,” Bishop Anderson said in a recent email message. “The meeting should not be planned for an hour over tea, for there is very much that needs to be said, and it should not take forever to arrange as was the case with the Panel of Reference. That… was one of the low points of Lambeth’s caritas, designed as it was to fail from the moment of birth. We pray that Lambeth has moved forward from that.”
