“How do we respond?” Danforth asked. “We should do a much better job of making it clear that communion (in the Episcopal Church) is open… and then let God sort it out.”

I hope they don't mean open admission to the Eucharist. Title I, Canon 17, Section 7 says:

No unbaptized person shall be eligible to receive Holy Communion in this church.

I believe that you will find that even the members of the Network are practicing "open communion" which means - to them - any Christan - can come to the alter and recieve the Body and Blood. I visted one such church this past Sunday and was in shock.
