Father Jake: Purple-clad Prelates Propose a Plethora of Plans

Centrists / General Convention

“Father Jake’s” site has a post detailing some of the proposals people are bringing to the House of Bishop’s meeting in New Orleans (that begins today)

“It’s hard to keep track of all the supposed plans that are to be presented to the House of Bishops. Here’s a few that I’ve heard about;

Dr. Williams will no doubt arrive in New Orleans with some kind of proposal. Stephen Bates uses stronger language, suggesting he ‘will demand concessions.’

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori is rumored to have a new primatial vicar plan. This rumor actually makes sense, since the HoB have already rejected the Primates’ model, so an alternative would be expected.”

Some of the details of the Presiding Bishop’s plan are coming out. The Episcopal News Service has information about a group of moderate to conservative bishops who have agreed to serve with the PB in role of Episcopal Visitors.
