A STATEMENT FROM FORT WORTH VIA MEDIA IN THE WAKE OF DIOCESAN CONVENTION
Fort Worth Via Media regrets the schismatic and illegal actions taken today at the 26th Annual Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth, but will continue to work with the Steering Committee North Texas Episcopalians to reorganize the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth and get on with God’s work here in North Texas.
We are sorry that our bishop, much of our leadership, clergy and many lay delegates chose to leave the Episcopal Church today. We wish them well in whatever spiritual home they find.
For our part, we will welcome back any who wish to return at any time. We are confident our diocese will recover quickly from the destructive acts of today to grow into a healthy vibrant part of the Episcopal Church, in union with General Convention and in communion with the Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, our presiding bishop.
