AAC Commends Williams for his support on new orthodox Episcopal Network

AAC Commends Williams for his support on new orthodox Episcopal Network
and AEO

February 10, 2004

The American Anglican Council (AAC) is pleased to learn of the
sympathetic reaction that the Network of Anglican Communion Dioceses and
Parishes received from the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. Rowan
Williams, in his General Synod address yesterday. We are also encouraged
that Archbishop Williams spoke of ongoing conversations and work with
"several parties" regarding "so me sort of shared future and common
witness, so far as possible." This acknowledgement of work with
representatives of the Network and the American Anglican Council to help
map the direction of North American Anglicanism as well as " to make
adequate provision for Episcopal oversight" clearly refutes statements
from ECUSA leaders implying no such discussions have occurred.

We applaud Archbishop Williams' remarks affirming his commitment to
adequate provision for Episcopal oversight. His vision is consistent
with that of the Anglican Primates (as outlined in their October 2003
statement), the new Network and the American Anglican Council, and not
with the leadership of EC USA and their proposal for "supplemental
pastoral care."

The Archbishop's statement offers much needed clarity as the American
Anglican Council moves forward with plans to provide Adequate Episcopal
Over sight (AEO) to beleaguered congregations in the Episcopal Church.
