ACC - May 7

According to the Daily Program the afternoon offered an island tour or free time, and the evening is unscheduled. Perhaps for that reason reporting on the day has come in earlier than usual. Look for significant developments tomorrow morning in the decision making plenary on the Covenant and Windsor Continuation Group matters.

I wonder sometimes if the webmasters' frequent reports and postings on heavy news days don't stifle debate here. Earlier today we had a promising discussion that questioned Episcopalians' ongoing relationship with the Church of England, and now we have… this, a report of others' reports.

Let me suggest that the blog needs reformatting and a better webhost, so that earlier posts and dialogues are not lost. A blog that posts each entry as a separate page stops being a blog at all; I ask the webmasters to reconsider. Every entry cuts off the momentum from the last post and stops the conversation.

Josh, it is a blog. But I believe I see your point - there are multiple entry points and some take one just to the latest post.

Click on "The Lead" where ever you see it and it will take you to

Oh - so reading the headline, which is the obvious place to click (along with Read More) - isn't the way to do it. We're all supposed to know to click on Episcopal Café - even though most of us have in our bookmarks, that's not how it's done.


Upgrade the techno, folks. What worked a year ago is no longer good enough. You are accidentally stifling debate, when the Anglican Communion is threatening to kick us to the kerb and some portion of us are already lying there voluntarily.

Set us free, Bishops and Deputies in Anaheim, from this pernicious and political Communion.
