Comments: ACNA - some more stuff

From Ashworth's Church Times article: "But Synod members in the UK were also due to receive this week a note from within the Episcopal Church."

It strikes me as such a shame that ACNA does not take a name in which the final letter would be 'E' for Episcopalian.

Am I too, too wicked ?

ACNE: Anglican Church (Not Episcopalian).

The wording of the AAC press release is careful: "The Synod is expected to vote on THE NATURE of its communion with the ACNA next week.” (capitals added by me for emphasis)

This reflects a concern by them that Lorna Ashworth's motion actually does more harm than good by making it explicit that, at the moment, the Church of England is NOT in communion with ACNA.

badman, along those lines: A comment on TitusOneNine makes the claim that the Church of [sic] Ireland is already in communion with ACNA. Does anyone else have information on this?

I see that comment Charlotte, and I do not have the slightest idea what it can be based upon. I think it is a mistake.
But Church of Ireland is the correct name for that province.
