BREAKING NEWS - Presiding Bishop Calls for Joint Session Wednesday Morning to ReConsider Windsor Report


Frank Griswold, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, has called for a Joint Session for Wednesday, June 21 to address the Windsor Report. This would be a historic moment for the church to see if the Episcopal Church is at a place where it can be honest and clear about where the church stands regarding the requests made to it by the Anglican Communion.

The Bishops are now discussing with what will be presented at the Joint Session.

7:30 p.m. - Frank Griswold is now saying that the bishops of the Special Committee meet with their counterparts in the House of Deputies to put something together as direct as possible that might be a form of reconsideration in the House of Deputies and what might ultimately be a mind of the house from the Bishops so that on Wednesday that both houses may do something and concur or the House of Bishops alone will pass a Mind of the House alone.

A request has been made whether there will be a violation of canons in addressing the requests made in the Windsor.

The Presiding Bishop has called for the chaplain.

JUST IN - The House of Deputies are being informed of the Joint Session which will be after the Eucharist on Wednesday morning.

Wow! Mind of the House? Never heard of such a thing.

With the election of a pro-gay, lady presiding bishop, the General Convention has spoken on behalf of The Episcopal Church of the USA. The faithful hung on when you took the BCP from us, we hung on when you ordained women. Stupid us thought that someone would stand up for those of us who actually believe when we stand and reaffirm our faith each Sunday at mass. Now we know that here is a church that has chosen the wide road of destruction. The grief has been almost unbearable. You have made a mockery of God and the faithful of this Church.

Mr. Griswold should forget the chaplain. He needs an undertaker.
