In London, at the Archbishop of Canterbury's Lambeth Palace, seventy-six Anglican bishops from the British Isles, the British colonies, and the United States met behind closed doors in a Conference of the Anglican Bishops of the Anglican Communion.  Discussion and eventual resolutions emerged and later a series of public religious services were held at the nearby St. Lawrence Church.  The Bishop of Louisiana delivered the first sermon at this event.  (By John Osborne)
