From Episcopal Life Online, re the Fort Worth split:
Diocesan bishop Jack Iker, who has said nothing will change in the day-to-day operations of the diocese, read a letter from Archbishop Gregory Venables, welcoming Fort Worth into the Southern Cone.
At a news briefing following the conference, Iker predicted other dioceses will follow. "We've redefined the right wing of the church today … the center keeps shifting to the left. I say to South Carolina, Albany, Dallas, Central Florida and Springfield, welcome to the new right wing of TEC (the Episcopal Church)."
With the realignment of Fort Worth "now there are no dioceses who cannot, out of conscience, ordain women," he said. He said that convention's action effectively joined the entire diocese to the Southern Cone immediately and those clergy and congregations opting to remain with TEC would have to inform him of their decision.
He also said he hopes both sides can work together to avoid protracted litigation over property and assets.
To the invitation in the second paragraph, as a member of the Diocese of Dallas, I say: "No thanks."
To the first sentence of the third paragraph, I say, "Thanks be to God!"
To Mompriest's excellent comment on prior post, I say, "Amen. Selah. So may it be."
