INVITATION TO ROME ON THE SHELF - TO GO OR NOT TO GO
The Independent today makes me wonder whether the earlier invitation to Rome might be accepted after all.
Anglican rebels 'in Vatican meeting' By Alastair Beach Monday, 7 July 2008
The Church of England declined to comment yesterday on a report that senior bishops held talks with Vatican officials over the crisis-hit Anglican Communion. The clergymen met senior advisers of Pope Benedict XVI to discuss homosexual priests and women bishops, according to a Sunday newspaper. They are said to have expressed dismay at the Church of England's "liberal" direction. The reports came ahead of a crunch vote at today's General Synod, the Church of England's ruling body, on how far to accommodate parishes which oppose women bishops.
Ordained Anglican. Thinking out loud about church.
