Bishop Ed at Lambeth
PHOTO FROM EPISCOPALOKLAHOMA.ORG/The Rt. Rev. Edward Konieczny, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma, poses for a picture with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, at the 2008 Lambeth Conference in England.
As he prepared to travel to the much-anticipated Lambeth Conference, Bishop Edward Konieczny predicted that some difficult conversations were ahead for participants of the once-a-decade event in England.
Apparently those weighty matters have descended upon n bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma, and others attending the conference set to wrap up on Sunday.
As promised, Konieczny has been posting missives about the conference on the Oklahoma diocese’s Web site. In his most recent posting Konieczny said hearings regarding the Windsor Report began yesterday.
The Windsor Report was issued in 2003 by a group of leaders in the worldwide Anglican Communion. It sharply criticized the Episcopal Church USA, the American arm of the Anglican Communion, for the 2003 consecration of the first openly gay Episcopal bishop (V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire – who, by the way, was excluded from Lambeth, but is meeting in an area near the prestigious gathering with some bishops and other leaders supporters).
