Comments: whither the Network?

As always when the ACN and its allies are involved, one has to ask:

They are always so concerned that conservatives be able to follow their consciences in a liberal church, or a liberal diocese...what provisions have they made for liberals to follow THEIR consciences in a conservative diocese?

"whither the Network?"

WITHER their schism?

Lord, hear our prayer!

Perhaps he wants the Network to become a Church... Actually, it sounds like he is hedging its bets and the ACN is more likely to be a clearing house, with more emphasis on attempting to leave TEC.

Actually, now that I think about it, the train is about to leave Bob behind.

This is all about being the center of attention. But, what with CANA, et al, Akinola and friends have a new set of Americans to hang out with.

The press now look elsewhere for someone to have a temper tantrum about TEC; they don't need ole Bob any more.

And the House of Bishops is beginning to show a little backbone -- not sure he will have the Church Pension Fund to fall back on in retirement.

Must be lonely 'round the Diocese of Pittsburgh; no surprise he's calling a meeting. The question is, with all the other travel plans these folks have -- meetings in London, GAFCON, Meetings of hte Global South, people running off to the Southern Cone -- the travel budget does have a limit.

So Bob has called yet another meeting; the question is, will anyone come.

"not sure he will have the Church Pension Fund to fall back on in retirement."

Actually, he will - for his years of service in the Episcopal Church. He doesn't lose that, in spite of his schismatic activities.
