TREC thanks attendees at churchwide live webcast

TREC thanks attendees at churchwide live webcast

The Task Force for Re-imagining The Episcopal Church (TREC) letter From the Office of Public Affairs of the Episcopal Church:

We want to thank everyone who participated in our churchwide meeting last Thursday evening. More than 140 people attended in person at Washington National Cathedral and over 4,000 people tuned into a live webcast of the meeting. English and Spanish language recordings of the entire meeting can be found on TREC’s website. A recording with a closed captioning transcript will be posted as soon as it is ready. We are grateful to Washington National Cathedral and to Trinity Church, Wall Street for supporting this meeting and our work.

Following the churchwide meeting, members of the taskforce met in Washington, D.C. for two days to review the questions and feedback that we received prior to, during, and after the churchwide meeting. Questions and comments were received via Twitter, Facebook, web-posts, email, blogs, and in-person discussions.

We are very grateful for the thoughtful responses and inquiries about our work, and we appreciate the challenges to the thinking that we have published to-date. During this final in-person meeting together, we found ourselves in deep and prayerful discussion about issues of discipleship, shared leadership, and change as we continued to shape our final recommendations.

TREC’s final report will be sent to the General Convention office by the end of November, and it will be released to the Church as soon as Spanish and French language translations are complete. TREC’s final report will contain specific recommendations to the 78th General Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah in July 2015.

Watch the meeting here.

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.
