ACNA Likely to be Recognized in Anglican Communion?

She gives very few details but Ruth Gledhill remarks, “What has surprised me most are the strong signals I'm receiving that the new Anglican Church in North America is likely to be given some kind of recognition, perhaps as an extra-provincial entity.”

If so, this would go a long way to explain why key orthodox primates were so positive about what was outwardly a rather nondescript Primates Meeting.

We shall see in due time. I still don’t expect anything at least until after the ACNA gets the i’s dotted and the t’s crossed this summer (and until the Episcopal Church's General Convention '09 further alienates most of the Anglican Communion). And, to be honest, it is not reasonable to expect recognition before then.

Hat tip to MCJ.

Perhaps we will get the Anglican equivalent of a papal Personal Prelature?
