I don't know what to make of the fact that the Archbishop of Canterbury isn't going to be at the meeting of the Joint Standing Committee in New Orleans next Monday. I can't even tell if it is a significant absence. It may be. But on the other hand, the JSC probably has a fair amount of routine business to attend to. And since they will all be in one place, they may just be exercising good stewardship by squeezing in a meeting.

The HOB's "mind of the house" resolutions might not be completed until mid-afternoon, so it seems unlikely that the JSC will be in a position to respond to them. On the other hand, the committee members will have had some extensive conversations with the bishops, so... who knows?
