Binoculars for the cliff hanger

I called the Office of the Presiding Bishop this morning  for clarification
about the deadlines for consents for Mark Lawrence as Bishop of South
Carolina.  TEC's canons specify that the Presiding Bishop must confirm the
authenticity of all balloting, not just the balloting of bishops.

March 9th would have been the deadline, but 3 days have been added for a
grace period.  The Presiding Bishop consulted David Beers, her chancellor,
as well as the  parliamentarian of the House of Bishops.  Therefore all
consents must be postmarked by today, March 12th.  By this evening the
Standing Committee of South Carolina will FedEx to the PB's Office for
verification all of the consent forms which they have received.  

Also a Standing Committee which has yet to file consent may notify the
Standing Committee of South Carolina by email today that such a consent is
in the mails.  Paper copies of all consents must be in the PB's office
before any announcement may be made.  Consent requires the majority of all
members of the Standing Committee, not just a majority of all members
present at a particular meeting.   

Thanks to Carl Gerdau, Canon to the Presiding Bishop, for walking me through
these details.
