I don’t suppose any of us - and least of all you - have been surprised by the way this week turned out. You must be inundated with messages of support and I gladly add this to the list though deeply saddened that it is necessary. The impact of the decision to depose you will obviously be far reaching and take some time to evaluate. It cannot do any good for the standing of ECUSA within the Anglican Communion. One of the saddest things of all is the contrast between this action and the warm words about remaining in fellowship uttered at The Lambeth Conference by some of those who voted for your ousting..
May God bless you, Nara, and the Diocese of Pittsburgh to whom I send my greeting and the promise of my continued prayers,
Yours in the love and service of Jesus Christ,
Bishop of Chichester
