OK, so this has been widely blogged, but I still love it -- so I'm posting it here for your reading pleasure. Eager to make a difference in the Anglican Communion? You can help get the ABC to the USA to talk with the HOB. (No doubt for his appearance they'll use the BCP instead of EOW.) Without further TLAs, I bring you this item:
See American bishops in their native habitat!
The bishops of the American Episcopal Church have asked Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, to make an unprecedented and long-delayed visit to them in North America to discuss the Current Unpleasantness pre-occupying the Anglican Communion. The Americans assure ++Cantuar that their Christian hospitality will match that of the various fissiparous bishops he has broken bread with on multiple continents. So that the plate and pledge of parishes is not unnecessarily depleted, elements within TEC inclined toward reconciliation or at least a good face-to-face row are offering a business class ticket to any USA destination of the archbishop's choosing, along with lodging in a Courtyard by Marriott (tm) or better accommodation within strolling distance of the agreed-upon meeting place. A team of Th.D translators will be on hand to couch ++Cantuar's musings in terms accessible to the colonials. Tea and biscuits to be provided by the ECW.
All are invited to bid on this communion-saving encounter.
Make your bid now! (Tip of the Canterbury cap to Thinking Anglicans)
UPDATE: See this update from Brother Causticus over at titusoneten. It appears that eBay wishes to hasten the demise of the Anglican Communion. If this wasn't an InclusiveChurch blog, I'd threaten eBay with impaired communion or something.
