Bishop crossed in mitre row

From The London Times-

Canon James Rosenthal, who took the picture above, was the last American employed by the Anglican Communion Office. He was made redundant two years ago. Of the annual ACO budget, 80 per cent comes from The Episcopal Church and the Church of England, about half each. Canon Kenneth Kearon, sec-gen of the ACO, has been invited to the TEC exec council meeting in Baltimore this week. I apologise to readers here for being a little lax in reporting his recent missive to TEC, kicking them off a couple of key ACO committees.

This is what Neva Rae Fox, the Presiding Bishop's spokeswoman, told me today:
'Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori shared the details with the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church, a 40-member body of elected lay, clergy and bishops of our Church who are currently meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. The details were reported in the Episcopal News Service article, and there isn't any more to say. Rather, Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori and the Executive Council are focused on the mission and ministry of the church.'

Apparently the question of the ACO budget is one of the issues on the agenda this week...
