"Houston, General Convention has got a problem ..."

[BabyBlueOnline] 2 Apr 2009--No April Fools here.

Leading Church historian, Robert W. Prichard of the Virginia Theological Seminary, has written a fine essay in the church history journal, Anglican & Episcopal History (Vol. 78, No. 1, March 2009).

Here, Fr. N.J.A. Humphrey of Covenant offers an excellent summary of Dr. Prichard's essay, much of which is quite pertinent not only to the upcoming General Convention and it's attempt to recast Title IV with the current Troubles, but also the assumption that the General Convention operates as an authority above the local dioceses when the TEC constitution says no such thing. The essay is also casts an enlightening view on the property fights now underway in American courts, including Dr. Prichard's own Diocese of Virginia whom he will represent as a Deputy to General Convention this summer.

I find your blog very interesting. Where are you located in Western KY? Do you have a parish?

We are only 12 minutes away from Henderson, KY.

Sorry, but I couldn't find an e-mail address to contact you.
