Episcopal traditionalists convene

More than 2,100 Episcopal conservatives meet in Pittsburgh today for a first-ever international conference sponsored by the Anglican Communion Network, a consortium of 10 dioceses, 16 bishops and clergy and laity representing more than 200,000 Episcopalians.
Nine overseas archbishops will attend, along with 26 U.S. Episcopal and Canadian Anglican bishops. They include outspoken Nigerian Archbishop Peter Akinola, who has repeatedly told U.S. Episcopalians to “repent” for consecrating V. Gene Robinson as the world’s first openly homosexual Episcopal bishop in 2003.
Called “A Hope and a Future,” the conference mission statement calls itself “a mobilization for the rebirth of a biblical, missionary, and united Anglicanism in North America.” The 2.2-million-member Episcopal Church is part of the 70-million-member worldwide Anglican Communion.
“The logjam is about to break,” says Pittsburgh Episcopal Bishop Bob Duncan, moderator of the ACN. “The way forward for biblical and missionary Anglicans — and Christians — is increasingly clear and involves all of us together.”
A group of liberal church members said they were “perplexed” about some of the non-Episcopalians invited to speak, such as megachurch Baptist pastor the Rev. Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., and Anne Graham Lotz, one of evangelist Billy Graham’s three daughters.

Read it all. The accusation of Donatism is false; the concern is about eucharistic fellowship not sacramental efficacy.
