In her article in The Times, Gledhill notes:
Significantly, The Episcopal Church funds at least 40 per cent of the budget of the Anglican Communion Office, without which the Anglican Communion and its 38 provinces would be unable to continue as a coherent body.
And in her blog, Gledhill notes regarding the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church meeting in Baltimore:
Apparently the question of the ACO budget is one of the issues on the agenda this week...
The juxtaposition of the Archbishop of Canterbury's lines in the sand with the financial stakes serves to underscore the courage he is now demonstrating. And the difficult position the Secretary General of the ACO, Canon Kenneth Kearon, faces in his meeting with Executive Council.
