Factions Within Texas Episcopal Diocese Hold Separate Conventions as Legal Battle Continues

From Ft.Worth-

While legal disputes continue over the name and property of The Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth, the two competing parties are holding their annual church conventions separately.

In 2008, the leadership of the Texas-based diocese voted to cut its ties with The Episcopal Church over growing theological differences. Since then, dispute over who owns the diocese's property has been debated in court.

This weekend, The Episcopal Church's faction is holding its 31st Annual Convention at the Ray Clymer Exhibit Hall of the Multi-Purpose Events Center in Wichita Falls.

Katie Sherrod, director of Communications for the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth (TEC), told The Christian Post that despite the developments in the legal battle, things will go on as usual.
