Bishop Todd Hunter Joins the ACNA (Updated)
Anglican Ink reports that Bishop Hunter has left Bishop Murphy’s whatchamacallit and has joined the ACNA. This is good news. I especially appreciated this section of the report:
Bishop Hunter also stated that he had asked for and had received forgiveness from the Primate of Rwanda, Archbishop Onesphore Rwaje for “my part in actions, attitudes or communications that were hurtful to him or to my brother bishops in Rwanda…more”
There had been some concern that Bishop Hunter’s role in the upcoming ACNA Provincial Synod might in some way legitimize the schismatic actions of Murphy and his followers - of which Bishop Hunter had been one. Now those concerns can be put to rest. May more AMiA bishops follow Bishop Hunter’s lead.
Update: Here’s a statement from Bishop Hunter’s office received via emai:
The Rt. Rev. Dr. Todd Hunter has requested transfer from the Anglican Province of Rwanda to the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh of the Anglican Church in North America. Bishop Todd has requested to serve as Bishop with Special Mission. He will continue to lead Churches for the Sake of Others (C4SO) as his principal call in ministry and will be headquartered on the West Coast.
Bishop Hunter looks forward to meeting with Archbishop Duncan in Pittsburgh in the next few weeks to achieve the canonical and jurisdictional precision necessary for a church planting mission to work cooperatively with provincial and diocesan structures.
