Another big day ahead at General Convention

Another big day ahead at General Convention

The House of Deputies will discuss legislation on the Anglican Covenant today, possibly quite soon. There is deep dissatisfaction with what some consider the wishy-washy nature of the legislation, but it is unclear how broad it is, or whether, with so much on the agenda, there is energy to do much about it.

The bishops will be discussing a resolution on dissolving a relationship between a bishop and a diocese at some point today, possibly within the next few hours.

The deputies will elect Bonnie Anderson’s successor as president of their house at 12:30.

A joint session will receive the budget from the Program Budget and Finance Committee this afternoon at about 2:30.

The Deputies will elect some of the members of Executive Council at 3:45 p. m.

The Deputies will take up same-sex blessing legislation passed yesterday by the bishops at about 5 pm.

We will be live tweeting much of the activity from the House of Deputies from @episcopalcafe, and much of the activity from the House of Bishops from @Canticlecom

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
