Our Kate Elected to Primates' Standing Committee

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori was elected February 19 to represent the Americas on the Primates' Standing Committee.

Each region -- Americas, Africa, Asia and Oceania, Europe, and the Middle East -- elects its own representative to the Standing Committee, which operates as the governing board of the Primates.

Other members elected to serve on the Committee are Archbishops Phillip Aspinall of Australia; Mouneer Anis of Jerusalem and the Middle East; Henry Orombi of Uganda; and Barry Morgan of Wales. Five alternates were also elected and would serve on the Committee in the absence of their region's counterpart.

It seems that Our Kate is moving up in the Primate world [well, we knew she was special anyway...] and for such a heavily touted outcast, she is doing well for herself and the Communion. The Global South is losing steam and face.

This is +Peter Akinola: I would hide my face too if I was the only Primate who didn't go to Eucharist in the Cathedral in Zanzibar...

Keep everyone in your prayers and thoughts as we all muddle through this abomniable kerfuffle we as a Communion find ourselves in.

Akinola should be ashamed to show his bigoted face. So we repent of slavery but not of enslaving our own brothers and sisters in Christ. I care more for their Christ-like hearts than what they do in the privacy of their bedroom.
