More St Albans news

The St Albans Diocesan Evangelical Fellowship has issued a statement expressing “Serious Disquiet” following the appointment of Jeffrey John to be Dean of St Albans.
You can read the statement on the diocesan website. Below it is a note from the diocese explaining that The Bishop of St Albans, the Rt Revd Christopher Herbert will be pleased to meet with diocesan clergy and official representatives of parishes who are concerned about the appointment of Canon Jeffrey John, following his return from the diocesan pilgrimage (which concludes on 7 May).
The BBC has a report of all this here
and so does the Press Association here while
the Telegraph has Gay cleric faces new pressure to step down.

Meanwhile, “Anglican Mainstream” has created a St Albans page with links to many of the stories of the past few days.

Simon, I read that there are 40 signatories. Do you know where we might find a list of who they are? As a deeply troubled occasional worshipper at one of the city’s more Alpha-sect parishes, I fear that the presence of some signatures may signal my falling “out of communion” with certain individuals.
