Robert Duncan, bishop of the Pittsburgh Diocese of the Episcopal Church (USA), who has declared that the rifts in his own denomination may be "irreconcilable," will be one of the keynote speakers at the New Wineskins Convocation in Tulsa on July 19-22.

The convocation is expected to draw hundreds of Presbyterians, including ministers and elders who have already aligned with the New Wineskins. They will consider steps the group may take in response to the actions of the 2006 General Assembly.

At their first convocation last fall, the New Wineskins members, who had approved theological and moral imperatives, also approved a governing constitution – which is still a work in progress.


Duncan is the moderator of the Anglican Communion Network in the United States, an orthodox group that includes 10 dioceses, 800 congregations and more than 200,000 Episcopalians.

New Wineskins is one of several moderate groups in the ultra liberal PCUSA trying to decide whether to jump off the fence or not - like many of the moderate ECUSA bishops.
