PEPtalk Puts “Realignment” in Perspective

September 12, 2008. The September 2008 issue of PEP’s newsletter PEPtalk is a valuable resource for Pittsburgh Episcopalians seeking to understand the upcoming votes at the October 4 diocesan convention and related developments in the wider church. Front-page stories explain the “realignment” decision that will be before deputies, that is, whether to remove the diocese from The Episcopal Church and associate it with the Anglican province of the Southern Cone. They also discuss the potential deposition of Pittsburgh’s Bishop Robert Duncan, and describe Across the Aisle, the coalition of theologically diverse Episcopalians opposing the bishop’s plan. Other features a story on the Lambeth and the Global Anglican Future Conferences and a commentary on why “realignment” is improper.

PEP has mailed copies of PEPtalk to more than 350 members, friends, and church leaders. You can read it on-line here.
