More on the Lambeth Invitations

The Episcopal Café continues to do a fine job of collecting news and commentary. See their overnight news summary here. They also carry a report that two other Anglican bishops (Kunonga of Central Africa and Cavalcanti of South America) may not be invited to Lambeth; they print the story here.

Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori and Bonnie Anderson (President, House of Deputies) have both urged a restrained and thoughtful reaction. Meanwhile, CANA bishop Minns has issued this statement excoriating the Episcopal Church, and Nigerian Archbishop Akinola has declared that the Archbishop's failure to invite +Minns may precipitate a boycott by the entire Nigerian delegation.

As usual, Brother Tobias offers a thoughtful analysis. Read his Invitations Sent and Withheld, which begins:

Much is being made of the guest-list to Lambeth. To my mind, it seems above all that +Cantuar is giving +Abuja the opportunity to walk apart.
