The truth about the Diocese of Pittsburgh

The following was copied from Three Rivers Episcopal, the blog of Rev. James Simon:

Group Announces Unity Event for Pittsburgh Episcopal Diocese

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania — September 3, 2008 — A coalition of Episcopal clergy and laypeople today invited everyone in the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh to an event promoting diocesan unity. “A Hopeful Future for the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh: An Alternative Solution” will present the case for rejecting proposals that, purportedly, would remove the diocese from The Episcopal Church. Speakers will explain how continuity of the diocese as a judicatory of The Episcopal Church will be maintained irrespective of the outcome of the vote on “realignment” at the October 4 diocesan convention.

“A Hopeful Future” will be presented at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 1066 Washington Rd., Mt. Lebanon, Pa., from 1 to 3 pm on Saturday, September 13, 2008. The program will be of special interest to vestry members, convention deputies, and Episcopal Church supporters feeling isolated in pro-realignment parishes. Those interested in attending may obtain additional information by calling St. Paul’s at (412) 531-7153 or by visiting its Web site at . (Ed. there is nothing I found on the church's website about this meeting except the date but you can find directions to the church.)

IMNSHO the people who should be especially interested are the ones who have swallowed Bishop Duncan's, um, er, opinions without being willing to seek out the facts of TEC.
