Depending on what side of the issues you find yourself, Titusonenine has a good grasp from the conservative side, and Thinking Anglicans takes the liberals by the hand.
However, as I mentioned earlier, if you're the 99% of us who fill trapped in the middle AKMA's random thoughts are right on the mark!

My response to all of this is to remember we belong to Christ Jesus! If you chose to operate the way the world does, you will be judged for it. This is not a win/loose moment. When one part of the body suffers, all suffer. What is needed now as always is prayer and reconciliation. We must demand that of ourselves and our leadership in the Church--both liberals and conservative alike and the rest of the 99% of us who find ourselves squeezed in the middle.
Gracious Father, we pray for thy holy Catholic Church. Fill it
with all truth, in all truth with all peace. Where it is corrupt,
purify it; where it is in error, direct it; where in any thing it is
amiss, reform it. Where it is right, strengthen it; where it is in
want, provide for it; where it is divided, reunite it; for the sake
of Jesus Christ thy Son our Savior. Amen.

The Bishops and Deputies are taking seriously their work. And the spirit of unity seems to be rising to the top of all the ministry being done here in Columbus.
As I type this, Larry King Live is playing in the background, and it might seem from those on the ouside as it does to those on the TV show that the only thing we are discussing here is sex. But that simply isn't true.
It is my hope and prayer is that the spirit of God will transform our hearts and minds and renew our desire for mission and evangelism and service in our community.
I will try to check in from time to time. But for up to the minute information on what is going on, check on our diocesan website.
