House of Deputies Votes on B033


The chair has called the Chaplain.

The vote begins.

The chair recognizes a deputy from Central New York.

His question ruled out of order. They will continue to take a Vote by Orders.

Silence.

Here in the newsroom people are typing and listening intently. A few reporters wearily sip their coffee. You hear the tap, tap, tap of the laptops. We wait.

If this passes, the Episcopal Church will not have complied with the requests made by the leadership of the Anglican Communion in the Windsor Report.

Lay Orders are voting

Clergy Orders are now voting.

Point of clarificatioon

As obvious as it may seem, and as tempting to declare, ++Rowan Williams will determine if TEC has "Walked Apart" from the Anglican Communion, what that may mean, and any plan for the orthodox to remain in communion with him. Pray this unfolds graciously!

And by the way THANK YOU for your timely and thorough reporting - it has been a real blessing as many others have crashed or been jammed.
