PB asks Akinola to reconsider visit

[ENS] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has written to Nigerian Primate Peter J. Akinola asking him to reconsider plans to install Martyn Minns as a bishop in the Convocation of Anglicans in North America (CANA), an action she says “would violate the ancient customs of the church” and would “not help the efforts of reconciliation.”

Such action, Jefferts Schori added, “would display to the world division and disunity that are not part of the mind of Christ, which we must strive to display to all.”

The installation service, set for May 5 the Hylton Memorial Chapel, a nondenominational Christian Event Center in Woodbridge, Virginia, is intended to install Minns as bishop of CANA, which describes itself as “an Anglican missionary effort in the US sponsored by the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion).”
