The Tully family is remembered fondly in the Diocese of Washington where they served St. Columba’s, our largest parish with much the same verve and compassion they now bring to St. Bart’s in New York. Both the Rev. Bill Tully and his wife Jane have written movingly and insightfully from a personal perspective about the issues now confronting the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion.
Jane, a leader of Clergy Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays, was a member of the delegation that spoke about the Episcopal Church’s awakening to its sinful treatment of gay and lesbian Christians to the Anglican Consultative Council at Nottingham in 2005.
Now, in the wake of the recent meetings is Tanzania, the Tullys are speaking out again.
Bill’s article for the On Faith feature of the Washington Post’s Web site is here.
Jane’s recent essay for CFLAG is here.
