George Conger asks a question to Bishop Stacy Sauls of the Diocese of Lexington on his opinion on what Archbishop Rowan Williams said yesterday in his teaching at the morning Eucharist. "I think the Archbishop began as I recall that homily by trying to put to rest reading into anything into anything else he might say. He began with an affirmation of his personal affection and belief in the Episcopal Church," says Bishop Sauls. "He thought that was true of the communion as well. I heard him say as well that he has anxiety that the convention take action that would lead to further division in the life in the communion."
A question is later asked whether this anxiety will influence the legislation facing The Episcopal Church. "I hope that anyone will be heard, but I don't know if it will have any affect," said Bishop Gary Lillibridge of the Diocese of West Texas. "Over the next few days we're going to try to figure out how as a church to bear one another's burdens."
When asked whether there is concern about The Episcopal Church accepting the consequences of General Convention possibly endorsing same sex unions or the consecration of more partnered gay bishops, Bishop Sauls says that Episcopal Church is ready to accept the consequences. He also made a point to note that the Anglican Church in North America is not a province.
