A Letter from Bishop Iker on Recent Developments

The Bishop of Ft. Worth Jack Leo Iker has written a brief letter that is delightfully typical of his straight spoken style and dry humor. He begins:

I am pleased to note the striking consensus between the reaffirmations in the Communiqué issued by the primates of the Anglican Communion at their February meeting in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and the deliberations and decisions of our Diocesan Conventions over the past several years.

He then spells out a number of the ways the Primates and his diocese are in concord. Then he wryly concludes:

Last fall The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council tagged us a "problem diocese." But instead The Episcopal Church has now been recognized as a "problem province."

Bishop Iker -- truthtelling with a smile. :^)
