More Steenson. (Update)

Bishop (for the nonce) Steenson in the London Times:
Referring to another meeting of the Church’s bishops this year, he said: “I was more than a little surprised when such a substantial majority declared the polity of the Episcopal Church to be primarily that of an autonomous and independent local church relating to the wider Anglican Communion by voluntary association. This is not the Anglicanism in which I was formed, inspired by the Oxford movement and the Catholic Revival in the Church of England. Perhaps something was defective in my education for ministry in the Episcopal Church, but, honestly, I did not recognise the church that this House described on that occasion.”
Here's the whole thing.

Bishop Steenson's statement to the House of Bishop's is here; it indicts, in a gracious way, both TEC liberals and "federal" conservatives.
