A Statement on Nashotah House

From here:

At the request of the Bishops of the Anglican Church in North America, meeting in conference call on Tuesday, February 25, I have been asked to make the following statement:

“The Bishops of the Anglican Church in North America deeply regret the invitation by Dean Edward Salmon to Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori to preach at Nashotah House. The insensitivity of this invitation to many of the loyal friends of the House is compounded by the proposed eucharistic context. What is far more concerning, however, are the fundamental spiritual, biblical and institutional issues that the visit to Chapel raises. We have trusted Nashotah House with our students, our prayers and our support, recognizing that the House also serves the Episcopal Church, and that a remarkable community has been built there. We hope that ways can be found to restore the trust that this particular invitation has seriously shaken.”

The Most Revd Robert Duncan, D.D. (Nashotah)
Archbishop, Anglican Church in North America
On behalf of the College of Bishops

One Response to A Statement on Nashotah House

  1. Frank Wirrell says:

    I cannot understand why any genuine Christian organization would extend an invitation to Katharine Schori when it is well known she rejects both the aurhority of Scripture and the uniqueness of Jesus Christ. Like many so-called bishops she should be defrocked until she makes a public confession of her sins against the Gospel and returns to the faith. I sincerely pray that the Nashota House will not fall into the trap of worshipping “political correctness” – a deceptive term on its own. We can only praise and thank God for the leadership we have in the Anglican Church in North America. Continue to pray for each and every one of them.
