Episcopal settlement involves two churches

This from the Richmond Times Dispatch. I've posted the entire article but the link is included in case you want to see for yourself.

The Episcopal Diocese of Virginia announced yesterday that it has reached a legal settlement with Potomac Falls Church in Potomac Falls and Christ the Redeemer Church in Chantilly. They were two of 11 churches that voted to leave the diocese in disagreement over homosexuality and other theological issues.

The mission churches, which do not hold any real property, will make a payment to the diocese as part of the settlement ending the litigation between the parties, the diocese said.
"The settlement also includes the Episcopal Church," the diocese added.

Under the agreement, the diocese will release the two churches from any claims or future liability arising from the litigation.
The settlement does not include the other nine churches that voted to leave the diocese. -- Robin Farmer
