Another day at General Convention

Another day at General Convention

While the budget of the Episcopal Church has been presented, it hasn’t yet been approved by either house. The deputies are about to start considering it now (11:30). The bishops will take it up within the next two days.

The deputies will elect a vice president.

The bishops may return to the complex legislation being developed that would give a diocese a means of ending its relationship with a difficult or ineffective bishop.

The bishops voted earlier in convention to extend the date by which dioceses must comply with the denominational health plan until 2015. That legislation has yet to come before the deputies.

The big, emotion-generating legislation has passed both houses, but we aren’t done yet.

You can follow the convention live on twitter at @episcopalcafe and @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.
