General Convention 2006

Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling. Then I will go to the altar of God, and I will praise you . . . Psalm 43:3-4

Did ECUSA Authorize This?

From Paragraph 53 of the SCECAC Report,
One Baptism, One Hope in God's Call

"We wish to reiterate what did and did not take place at General Convention 2003, and regret the misunderstanding which has ensued from our adoption of Resolution 2003–C051.

"In acting to recognize that “local faith communities are operating within the bounds of our common life as they explore and experience liturgies celebrating and blessing same-sex unions,” we expressly deny that such rites were authorized.

"Our polity defines authorized rites as those set forth in the Book of Common Prayer (1979), the Book of Occasional Services (2003), and Enriching Our Worship 1 and 2 (1997, 2000). The Episcopal Church has authorized no other rites."

If this is true, then what is this?
