Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has issued the call for a Special Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth. You can see the document here.
In short it says that because our diocese no longer has a bishop and no longer has a Standing Committee -- because they all left the Episcopal Church -- it falls to her to call the convention. At this convention delegates will elect a provisional bishop to serve until we are organized enough to elect one under more normal circumstance; bring the diocesan constitution and canons back into order, and pass other such business necessary to reorganize our diocese.

What you won't read there, because there is simply no way for a reporter to document it, is the incredible sense of joy and liberation being experienced here, as happy Episcopalians reach out to one another and to others, sharing their love of God and of one another in ministries new and old.
Yes, we mourn the unnecessary pain caused by those who foster division, but people are energized in their faith and full of hope as we move toward a new day in our diocese.
