Following General Convention

Episcopal News Service is offering a Media Hub for following General Convention with live streaming of worship services and tracking legislation among other ways of checking the activity in Indianapolis from the comfort of your computer:

The Media Hub will offer live streaming of the sessions from the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies, as well as a listing of daily events, a live twitter feed, Flickr photo stream, Episcopal News Service headlines, etc.

The Media Hub will go live on July 2 with greetings from Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, President of the House of Deputies Bonnie Anderson, General Convention Secretary the Rev. Dr. Gregory Straub, and Bishop Catherine Waynick, bishop of the host diocese of Indianapolis.

On July 4, live programming will commence with the opening addresses from Presiding Bishop Jefferts Schori and President Anderson.

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.
