Who Will Be Going To The Lambeth Tea Party?
So, the invitations to Lambeth are in the mail, and we already know that Some Folks are not invited! I'd heard rumours that +++Williams was going to invite everyone, but, as happens every now and then, the Rumour Mill was incorrect!
I'm sorry to hear that Bishop Robinson is not invited, however, according to an article in the Washington Post, the Rev. Canon Kenneth Kearon, Secretary General of the Anglican Communion, stated that Bishop Robinson may be invited as a "guest" of the ABC.
The Episcopal Blogosphere is a buzz and it's hard to keep up with all the talk.
Personally, I'm against the idea of a boycott; I think that everyone who was invited should appear. However, IF the HOB of TEC decides not to attend, I hope that other Churches will decline their invitations, too (I'm looking at you, IARCA! You too, IEAB! Actually, I'm giving the entire Global Center "The Look!").
I await the response of the Most Blessed Primates of the Global South, especially that of Archbishop Akinola, since the Golden Boy of CANA has not been invited. Archbishop Venables may get in a snit if The Other Bishop Robinson (as we call him here) is not invited.
Here is the list as I understand it right now:
No Need To Check The Mailbox:
The Rt. Rev. V.G. Robinson (New Hampshire);
The Rt. Rev. Martyn Minns (CANA);
The Rt. Rev. C.H. Murphy (AMiA);
The Rt. Rev. J.H. Rodgers (AMiA);
The Rt. Rev. T.R. Barnum (AMiA);
The Rt. Rev. A. M. Greene (AMiA);
The Rt. Rev. T.W. Johnston, Jr. (AMiA);
Good Chance Nothing Will Appear In Their Mailbox:
The Rt. Rev. Nolbert Kunonga (Diocese of Harare);
The Rt. Rev. Robinson Cavalcanti (fake Diocese of Recife)
Please add any other names in the comments.
UPDATE: According to this article at the Episcopal Café, The Rt. Rev. Robinson Cavalcanti (fake Diocese of Recife), known at the Dance Party as "The OTHER Bishop Robinson" must move his name from the Good Chance Nothing Will Appear In Their Mailbox: list to the No Need To Check The Mailbox: list.
Still no official word no the status of Kunonga of Harare. We'll keep ya posted!
I See You!
