Steve Waring of The Living Church writes that David Booth Beers, chancellor of the Episcopal Church “has written identical letters to the chancellors of two traditionalist dioceses demanding that they change language “that can be read as cutting against an ‘unqualified accession’ to the Constitution and Canons of the General Convention of The Episcopal Church.”

Bishop Jack Iker of Forth Worth calls the timing of the letter “shocking,” coming as it does just two days before Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori becomes our new presiding bishop. But folks who don’t think that dioceses have the right to decide which of the Church’s canons they will comply with think it is shocking that it took so long for these letters to be written.
