Texas Rector Withdraws from Episcopal Election in Malawi

Just when you thought it couldn't get any more confusing...From the Living Church.

The Very Rev. Scott Wilson, rector of All Saints’ Church, Weatherford, Texas, has withdrawn as a candidate to serve the Diocese of North Malawi in the Province of Central Africa.

Fr. Wilson, who has served as a missionary in Malawi and also was a candidate in a previous episcopal election in the African diocese, joined with others in the Diocese of Fort Worth in affiliating with the Anglican Communion in North America (ACNA). In a report published in the London Telegraph, Bishop Trevor Mwamba of Botswana noted that Fr. Wilson would not be able to subscribe to Canon 6 of the provincial canons because the ACNA is not yet recognized as a province in communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Jack Iker's office is spinning that he is in communion via the Southern Cone. Apparently not everyone buys into Jack's spin.
