David Virtue reports:
The Bishop of the DIOCESE OF SAN JOAQUIN, the Rt. Rev. John-David Schofield is encouraged by recent events coming from a national meeting of Common Cause Partners held near Kansas City, Missouri, where final preparations are being made for the new Province that now appears will be up and running by June 2009. "We already have the approval of the seven Primates of GAFCON (Global Anglican Future Conference). We expect massive support from the Primates of the Global South who will be meeting in the Caribbean in January. And, I don't think the liberal Primates at the worldwide conference of Primates to be held in Alexandria, Egypt, at the beginning of February, will have anywhere near the votes necessary to stall the recognition of the new Province to be called the Anglican Church in North America (since it includes the Canadians as well)."
