Cooler headers prevail: Joint Standing Committee does not take action against Southern Cone

Very good news. In fact, 815’s Matthew Davies is reporting Bishop Schori as saying that “the subject has not come up.” Funny how that happens. Since the Joint Standing Committee is meeting “behind closed doors” we do not know what – or what has not – actually happened. But perhaps Rowan Williams Advent Message got through. Here’s an excerpt from ENS:

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori was among those attending the JSC meeting, which was held behind closed doors at the Anglican Communion Office and Lambeth Palace in London. She noted that a November 26 report in The Times of London newspaper, that suggested the JSC had discussed plans to discipline the Anglican Province of the Southern Cone for its recent incursions into other provinces, was untrue. “The subject has not come up,” she told Episcopal News Service.
