From the Anglican Desk

In case you haven't been keeping up -- and, as it's August, who could blame you? -- the Anglican Communion is still doing its utmost to make the Catholic conversation look civil and decent by comparison.

As plans develop for the early November inaugural of Presiding Bishop-elect Katharine Jefferts Schori, the latest developments have a representative of archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams slated to meet in New York with six bishops of the Episcopal church (four dissidents, the PB and PB-elect), a Virginia cleric ordained under the aegis of the church of Nigeria (with the blessing of the conservative American Anglican Council) and, of course, the ultimate harbinger of broken communion -- the specter of lawsuits.

Somebody up to school our Anglican brethren in bella figura?

For more, keep an eye on Thinking Anglicans -- Canterbury's answer to Whispers.
