Three members of the House of Bishops have been invited by the Archbishop of Canterbury to address an extra-curricular session of the meeting of Anglican primates in Tanzania.
The Rt. Rev. C. Christopher Epting, Presiding Bishops deputy for Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations and retired Bishop of Iowa, will join the Rt. Rev. Robert Duncan, Bishop of Pittsburgh and moderator of the Anglican Communion Network, and the Rt. Rev. D. Bruce McPherson, Bishop of Western Louisiana and president of the Presiding Bishops Council of Advice. They will speak to the state of The Episcopal Church, according to sources in London who spoke with a reporter for The Living Church.
The three bishops will join Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, Archbishop Williams, Archbishop of York John Sentamu, and the 36 other primates at a hotel near Dar-es-Salaam for sessions on Feb. 14.
What does this mean? Nothing much. Neither TEC nor Dr. Williams are in control of events anymore so the best Eppie can hope for is to reduce the inevitable penalties against TEC a little. And even that's a longshot.
