Godly people are on both sides. We should be praying for a solution that is inclusive. There are CANA churches that are thriving, The history of the Falls Church needs to be considered. I believe all of this started with the 1979 Prayer Book and then Women’s Ordination. Is Anglican to be confused with KJV only Baptists? Property August 14, 2013 at 8:32 am There is a tremendous irony in Shannon Johnston’s complaints about litigation, given the highly litigious nature of Dr. Schori and her legal team at 815.It’s time for 815 to realize that there are increasing numbers of members who can no longer deal with the heterodoxy of TEC. An orderly process is needed in order to minister effectively to those members and parishes who are led by God to leave. The alternative will be, in many cases, congregations whose property is divested and sold by the denomination and parishes who must forsake generations of history and giving in order to remain faithful to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

CANA Falls Church has been denied at every level. It is time to stop and focus on their future. Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Submit a Job Listing [Episcopal Diocese of Virginia press release] The leaders of a Falls Church, Virginia congregation that broke away from the Episcopal Church said this week that they plan to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. The Falls Church CANA congregation will ask the high court to overturn the Supreme Court of Virginia’s April 18 ruling in favor of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. That state ruling upheld a 2012 decision that allowed The Falls Church Episcopal to return to its historic church home.An earlier appeal by the CANA group to the Supreme Court of Virginia for reconsideration of its unanimous decision was denied in June.“It is unfortunate that this litigation continues,” said Diocese of Virginia Bishop Shannon S. Johnston. “Nonetheless, we remain committed to focusing our energies on the work of the church. The Falls Church Episcopal continues to grow and thrive, and we all look forward to a time when we can put these issues behind us for good.”Those sentiments were echoed by the Rev. John Ohmer, rector of The Falls Church Episcopal. “We will continue to focus not on the past, but on growing our present and future ministries,” said Ohmer.The CANA congregation has until Sept. 12 to file its petition for appeal. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to make a decision on whether to hear the appeal toward the end of this year or the beginning of 2014.
