TYPE Flyer
DESCRIPTION Listing of positions taken by the diocese and The Episcopal Church, and three choices of direction offered to the diocese by its leadership
COMMENT Versions of this document were distributed at various district meetings. The first section lists actions taken by diocesan convention between 2003 and 2006. (Resolution 1 of 2002, which “warned” General Convention 2003 against making various decisions is omitted.) The second section asserts that The Episcopal Church has not done what the primates have asked of it. The third section lists a version of three of the four options originally discussed at a retreat in May. The option of “submitting” to The Episcopal Church, which is to say, taking an active, cooperative role role in church affairs, has apparently been dropped as unacceptable.
