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

Neither this commission, nor the ABC, nor the Primates...

"Matters of church doctrine or discipline in the Episcopal Church are not decided by bishops, or by individual dioceses, but only by the church gathered in General Convention. That form of governance is quite different from other parts of the Anglican Communion...

All of which is a very long way of saying that neither this commission, nor the Archbishop of Canterbury, nor the gathering of primates, can make rules or laws that bind the Episcopal Church."
