Open letter to the Archbishop of Canterbury.
Episcopalians concerned about demands from traditionalists for "alternative primatial oversight" for bishops and dioceses that do not want to recognize the authority of Katharine Jefferts Schori, the presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, will want to read (and consider signing) this open letter to the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Church's official recommendation to Canterbury is here. (Hat tip, Fr Jake)
Update 12.3.06: The small, reactionary Diocese of San Joaquin, Calif., voted yesterday to secede from the Episcopal Church. (Laurie Goodstein and Carolyn Marshall, New York Times 12.3.06, reg req'd)
