ACNA Archbishop says ‘sinful relationships’ preclude Lambeth appearance

Even though ACNA Archbishop Foley Beach says he is in “full communion” with three-fourths of the 80 million Anglicans around the world, he hasn’t been invited to Lambeth next month, and wouldn’t go even if he were. Lambeth has invited bishops in sinful relationships. “We cannot endorse this behavior by our participation,” he told delegates to the ACNA 2022 Provincial Assembly in Falls Church, VA.

Following are highlighted comments from various speakers at the ACNA Provincial Council and College of Bishops held June 13 — 15. This is the highest legislative body of the ACNA.

ARCHBISHOP FOLEY BEACH: “Regardless of the upcoming decision on Roe v Wade we will continue to uphold the sanctity of life and help mothers.”

NIGERIAN PRIMATE HENRY NDUKUBA: We are asking for advocacy: speak out and pray. We are appealing to a “Pax Americana” as defenseless women and children are assaulted by an “Islamist agenda” that is “well-resourced.”

“We’re not asking for guns. We’re not asking for money in the face of Islamist violence. We’re asking for your advocacy and prayer. I know there are people in this room who can influence U.S. policy.”

BISHOP KEVIN BOND ALLEN, DIOCESE OF CASCADIA: “While the province has grown and held together against legal attack and historical Anglican disunity, the opposing ecclesiologies and overlapping jurisdictions among dioceses is a hindrance to moving forward as a province.”
