Executive Council takes up thorny governance issues

Executive Council takes up thorny governance issues

The Executive Council is taking up some difficult issues of governance at its meeting near Baltimore. Episcopal News Service has the story:

The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council has begun an effort to clarify the responsibility and authority that reside in the agencies and boards that report to it.

As part of that process, the council Feb. 6 heard from representatives of the General Board of Examining Chaplains, the Board for Transition Ministry and the Board of the Archives of the Episcopal Church.

Council began to address the future functioning of the United Thank Offering and its relationship with the wider church at its last meeting in October. Council members will be asked Feb. 7 to approve a memo of understanding between the UTO and the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (the church’s corporate name), along with new UTO bylaws. The UTO board has approved both documents.

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.
