Speech of Bishop of Exeter to ECUSA HOB

Another remarkable aspect of the ECUSA House of Bishops meeting this past weekend was a speech to the bishops by the Bishop of Exeter.

He made it quite clear that he was speaking at the request of the Archbishop of Canterbury. And he also made it clear (by Anglican standards at least) that General Convention fudge won’t do in keeping the Anglican Communion together. Both the Bishop of Exeter and the Archbishop of Canterbury are to be commended for saying so to ECUSA’s bishops.

Some think he was saying the HOB resolutions noted in my previous post are insufficient. I’m not so sure that was his intent, but it may well be so.

Here’s a text of the speech.

And here’s the usual titusonenine commentarama.
