How Pope Francis, Archbishop of Canterbury inspired a prayer service in Tennessee

From Tennessee-

Inspired by an evening prayer service presided over by Pope Francis and Archbishop of Canterbury John Welby, Episcopalians and Roman Catholics in Middle Tennessee will set aside their differences and pray together on Sunday.

Two clergy from the Episcopal Dioceses of Tennessee — Bishop John Bauerschmidt and the Rev. Clint Wilson — attended that October vespers service in Rome. It was a part of a summit in Canterbury and Rome that marked half a century of unity between the Anglican Communion and the Roman Catholic Church. 

"We thought, well, if Pope Francis and Archbishop Welby can do this, there's no reason why we can't do that locally," said Wilson, the associate rector of St. George's Episcopal Church in Belle Meade.
