FYI … I voted against two of them and voiced my opposition. My expressed concern was not only with content and intent, but the stated commitment of the Presiding Bishop to the church last week. She stated publicly that she did not see any action being taken at this time as she wanted the entire church to be able to participate in a process of conversation surrounding the Communique over the summer. This, she stated, would enable the bishops to make an informed decision in their response to the Primates.
The third resolution, the one inviting the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Standing Committee of the Primates to come and meet with us was initiated by a Windsor bishop and passed unanimously (no abstentions).
Your prayers are much appreciated, and know that I am coming home and we are going to continue to seek to fulfill that which God has called us to be, faithful proclaimers of the Gospel.
Lenten blessings, and again, my gratitude for your prayers.
The Rt. Rev’d D. Bruce MacPherson
Bishop of Western Louisiana
and President, Province VII
