    That a pretty experienced choice for assistant bishop.

    This is all good for ACNA because it keeps the process of practical communion flowing. Names like “the Anglican Communion” are of limited relevance unless they are backed up by actual communion. One of the aspects of practical communion is exchange of clergy and bishops.

    Its also part of the process of ACNA learning to act as a province – there is a lot of “institutional knowledge” that has to be built up.

    Are not John Rogers and David Bena also Bishops in that Diocese? They are not listed but I have not seen any info on their departure?

    Anyone from Pittsburgh ACNA know?
