From Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori?

“Dear Mr. Roberts,

Thank you for your query. I regret the length of time this response has taken – I have been traveling and out of the office much of June.

I regret that you have been somewhat misinformed about the work of the House of Bishops Theology Committee. My understanding is that they have asked several theologians to write a paper or papers, as consultants to the Theology Committee. When a document is ready for public comment, I expect they will make public the names of their consulting theologians. I would invite you to compare this to the academic environment, where results and papers are not publicized until they are ready for public comment and review.

If you are still concerned, I would invite you to write directly to Bp. Parsley, who chairs the Committee.

May your ministry be a blessing to many. I remain

Your servant in Christ,

Katharine Jefferts Schori
