From the Times Online, Ruth Gledhill writes:
The deadline for bishops to respond to their invite to the Lambeth Conference has been extended, according to a report in the Church of England Newspaper tomorrow.
The extension comes after Sydney's six bishops told the Archbishop of Canterbury that they could not reply to the invite until they knew the response of American bishops to demands made by Primates in February at Dar es Salaam.
“Unfortunately the timing of the invitation has proved difficult,” they explained as they were first "looking for the response" of the American House of Bishops to the Primates’ February communiqué before they could give him their final answer. Sydney indicated it would follow the lead of the African churches who have said they will not attend if the American bishops who consecrated Gene Robinson were invited.
