Bishop Lee's statement of December 17, 2006

Full statement here.

Some extracts:
This is not the future of the Episcopal Church envisioned by our forebears.
. . .
I have asked the leadership of these now Nigerian and Ugandan congregations occupying Episcopal churches to keep the spiritual needs of all concerned uppermost in their minds at this difficult moment in our Church history, especially continuing Episcopalians.
. . .
Our polity maintains that all real and personal property is held in trust for The Episcopal Church and the Diocese. As stewards of this historic trust, we fully intend to assert the Church's canonical and legal rights over these properties.
