As the Diocese is being pursued from on high in respect of whether they have been keeping the canons of TEC or not,
Here is the Chancellor of the Diocese of South Carolina in a letter dated 7 October 2011 querying whether the Church Attorney representing TEC is also on the Disciplinary Board for Bishops of TEC, since that is not allowed by TEC's own canons.
And here is a comparative list of membership of the Disciplinary Board as posted on 8 October 2011 and 13 October 2011. The Church Attorney, Josephine Hicks, has dropped off the membership list.
If TEC is going to play with their canons as a means to bring order to their church, then they will need to be at the top of their game.
Of course there is another way to order the church, and that is by communication, dialogue, conversation, also known as 'talking to each other.'
In this case my humble suggestion, based on the experience of the two Down Under Anglican churches in Australia, and Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia, is that the presupposition of the talking is the intention to hold together despite great diversity. If Australia can hold the Diocese of Sydney in its midst, surely TEC can retain South Carolina ...
UPDATE: The Living Church has a report in which Bishop Henderson says that it was a mistake that Church Attorney Hicks' name was listed on the Disciplinary Board for Bishops (as well as a mistake that one bishop was listed who is not a membr). So that's all right then ... justice is in the hands of people who make simple mistakes with lists!
UPDATED UPDATE: The Living Church now has a report in which Bishop Henderson says that Hicks has recused herself from the role of Church Attorney to the Board because of a potential conflict of interest in respect of her law firm and the process of discipline involving +Lawrence and the Diocese. This is all working out rather well for those who remain cool, calm and collected, and could end badly for those who cannot escape shambolic process.
