Encouraging Ad Clerum from Bishop Iker to Diocese of Ft. Worth

I am delighted with the selection of Bishop Foley Beach to serve as the next Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America. He is of the same mind as we are on the question of women in holy orders, and he shares our appreciation of the rich catholic tradition of Anglicanism. At the same time, he has close connections with evangelicals and charismatics and is highly regarded by them. I knew him as a parish priest before he became a Bishop in 2010, and we have served together for many years on the board of the American Anglican Council, where we have become close friends and allies. Do keep him and his family in your prayers as he prepares to undertake this new ministry. I believe he will serve us well in the coming years. Bishop Iker
