Network Meeting: A New Province in the Works?

I’ve been out most of the morning. And I don’t want to jump the gun. But from what I’ve gleaned from the Anglican Communion Network meeting over at Stand Firm, it sure sounds to me that Bishops Duncan and Iker intend to lead orthodox U. S. Anglicans OUT of the Episcopal Church and to form a new province.

Among other interesting statements, Bishop Duncan described the Global South Steering Committee’s view as follows: “The American province is lost. And something will have to replace it.” And the context indicates that is his view as well.

And it sounds like he’s willing to separate from Canterbury as well to go into “new structures.” Duncan: “All of the Western structures of Anglicanism are failing,” including Lambeth and Canterbury.

Also, a number of bishops from the APA and REC are there.
