A letter to the Archbishop of Canterbury

Eighteen diocesan ECUSA bishops have written to the Archbishop of Canterbury asking for an emergency meeting on the current situation in the Episcopal Church.

(In a second letter, they have written ECUSA Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold asking for a commission. I honestly have trouble seeing what good another commission would do, however.)

The list of signatories is interesting. They are by no means all Network bishops. The bishop for my area, James Folts, signed as did +Don Wimberly. (All Texas bishops signed.) +Folts has been adamant in not joining the Network and both have a history of trying not to take sides (to put it nicely).

Interpret this development as you please.
