Mary Ailes, blogging on Baby Blue Café describes the action thus:

“Truro Church has filed a notice of an appeal to the Virginia Supreme Court regarding the recent ruling of the Fairfax Circuit Court.  Truro’s Notice of Appeal is here. This is not an appeal, merely a notice in case an appeal is filed.

In addition to the notice of appeal, The Falls Church filed today a Motion to Suspend Execution of the Final Order and to Set the Supersedeas Bond and Truro filed a Motion to Stay Execution of the Final Order and to Set the Supersedeas Bond.  This was also to be expected in case an appeal is filed.”

It looks like the concern is more about the money at this point than the buildings. This filing keeps the break-away group’s options open longer.

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.
