UPDATED: Episcopal Church bishops respond to Primates

UPDATED: Episcopal Church bishops respond to Primates

A recap of responses to the Primates’ Communiqué by bishops of The Episcopal Church, arranged by Province. Provinces in TEC are not autonomous as in other parts of the communion but all a part of one province whose Primate is The Most Rev. Michael Curry. Thanks to Episcopal News Service for many links. Add your bishop’s statement in the comment section and we will add it to the main list. Thanks to Andrew Goddard at Fulcrum for the design.

Here is Bp Sloan’s letter I will change the link. Thanks for letting us know.

Nancy Boutwell

Thank you!

Nancy Boutwell

Why is the statement by Bishop Sloan of Alabama preceded by a conflicting statement by the Dean of the Cathedral? It is misleading.

Ann Fontaine

Do you have a direct link to the bishop’s letter? Thanks

Prof Christopher Seitz

Very strong letter from the Cathedral Dean. His parish must be behind him. He has clearly distanced himself from the Bishop!

Melissa Holloway

I hope you find a link soon. I remember how that particular church flew a black flag outside when Gene Robinson was consecrated.

Jeremy Bates

“Suspended.” False. Archbishop Ntagali’s motion failed.

“Leave.” Wrong. We are known as a church that stands up for the marginalized. That’s what people think the church is for.

“Repent and do as told.” Not a chance!

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
