Church of Nigeria, REC, and APA agree to “Covenant Union”

This Reformed Episcopalian got a nice wake-up this morning when I found out that in Pittsburgh, the Most Rev. Peter J. Akinola, Primate of the Church of Nigeria, the Most Rev. Leonard W. Riches, Presiding Bishop of the Reformed Episcopal Church, and the Most Rev. Walter H. Grundorf, Presiding Bishop of the Anglican Province of America agreed on a “Covenant Union” between the three churches.

This does not bring us into official full communion, but certainly brings us closer. And it certainly strengthens our links with the orthodox in the Anglican Communion. It is welcome news indeed.

I told ya to watch the REC.
