(I received this and pass it on...the Anglican Way is in crisis in Canada as well as the USA)
The Essentials clergy in our diocese have put forward a motion (click here) regarding Alternative Episcopal Oversight, as well as a petition (click here) delivered recently to Archbishop David Crawley of the Ecclesiastical Province of BC & Yukon. On Tuesday May 28th at 7:30pm, there was an Essentials gathering for prayer and encouragement of around 500 parishioners from across our diocese at St. John's Shaughnessy. Your prayers are requested for what looks like a very rough ride ahead. Any influence that you might be able to bring to bear would be appreciated.
Yours in Christ, Ed Hird+
