Slee memo, less redacted

Slee memo, less redacted

We now have an only slightly redacted version of the Slee memo. What it omits is Slee’s daughter cover letter, and the last portion of the second appendix, that last portion being an email to Slee from Chris Smith, Chief of Staff, Lambeth Palace (who has not given the Guardian permission to publish).

The original memo is nine pages. The document is available HERE in two parts:

1. Pages 1 through 8.

2. Page 9 cropping off the Smith email which is the last part of the original final page, page 9.

The full document was discovered around 1:00 ET by a Google search of the terms Colin Slee restricted to the latest hour.

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.
