It is hard to tell whether there are more complaints about the most recent proposed three-year budget for the Episcopal Church than previous budgets, or if social media simply allows those complaints to be heard more clearly. Whatever the case, the Program Budget and Finance Committee, which is charged with producing the budget that will be voted on at the General Convention, is setting up a website that will offer, among other things, an opportunity to offer one’s opinion to PB&F members on the draft budget that has been prepared by Executive Council.
The site is scheduled to be launched by the end of the week.
Those of you who prefer to offer your advice in person, and have the opportunity to travel, can speak directly with the leaders of PB&F at one of the nine provincial synod meetings that will be held during the next few months.
At the convention, PB&F is scheduled to hold open committee meetings every day, as well as three open hearings where all comers will be able to offer their opinions of the draft budget that was prepared by Executive Council.
