The former Bishop of East Tennessee, the Rt. Rev. Charles vonRosenberg will meet with dissident members of the South Carolina clergy next week to offer his pastoral support following the suspension of their bishop and withdrawal of their diocese from General Convention of the Episcopal Church.
On 7 November 2012, an email purporting to be from the “Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina” and bearing the diocese’s seal was sent en masse to the clergy of the Diocese of South Carolina inviting them to attend the “Diocesan clergy day” to be held on 15 Nov at the Church of the Holy Communion in Charleston.
Amongst the activities planned was a sermon to be offered by Bishop vonRosenberg.
… Bishop von Rosenberg told Anglican Ink the diocesan statement misconstrued his role in the affair.
