January 16 2004 By virtueonline Rev. Don Johnson - Concerning The AAC Memo & Bishop Johnson

There was nothing particularly startling in the AAC memo--the revisionists
broke communion by disobedience to the expressed position of the Church's
instruments of unity, which then caused ECUSA to be in violation to its own
constitution and canons. This has resulted in more than half of the Anglican
Communion severing ties with our province. The AAC memo simply states that
it is serious business to reorder the church--and that we are prepared to

As I have noted elsewhere, the outrage over this "leaked memo" of the AAC is
either a sign of disingenuousness or of numbed consciousness. The basic
outline of this "strategy" has been public for some months, largely because
it represents the Proposal of the Primates of the Global South for
disciplining ECUSA (and New Westminster) that was presented at the October
Lambeth meeting (this proposal is available at

It is true that the new bishop designate has a high profile commitment
to evangelism and accepts the practical boundaries laid down by the
House of Bishop's Report 'Issues in Human Sexuality', but he has not
committed himself to maintaining orthodox and biblical teaching on
homosexuality. Indeed, his reported comments make it clear that he
regards this as provisional: "We need to listen to what God is saying,

Now, it’s been talked about in the press, and as I was talking with the organizers, I brought it up. And, as we gathered around, they looked down and said, “Well, you’re right.”

The African American Episcopal Community is missing. Last night, there were only three African American priests here for Eucharist.

January 13 2004 By virtueonline DR. FOLEY WRITES TO HIS PARISH

I have come to the conclusion that I can no longer serve the Lord as an Episcopal priest. It boils down to integrity, that I cannot knowingly violate my conscience. I cannot accept or abide by this new teaching of unChristian morality. In the words of Bishop Alexander, I can no longer embrace the “common life of the Episcopal Church.” So I must resign. My last day will be February 1 with the Annual Meeting of the Church.

January 13 2004 By virtueonline Report on Plano East - Day One

Did Bishop Lee ever dream that Bishop Duncan would lead a Eucharist of nearly 3,000 Episcopalians?

Tonight was the kickoff for the follow-up conference to the historic gathering of Episcopalians in Texas last October 7-10. Called "Plano" since that was the original site for the conference until the numbers grew too large (around 2,500 people as I recall) and had to be moved to Dallas.
