The Beginning of Our GC Adventure in Austin, TX

This is my first Blog post ever, but I am experienced with General Conventions.  Our adventure has begun.  Some of us met at the Airport (MSP) and flew together.  Some of us flew in earlier and some of us later.  Since this is the first convention for most of our deputation, I thought I would show you a bit of the first day of our journey.

GC Registration
There were short lines when we got to the convention center to register and get our credentials–Name Badges, Voting Cards and I-pads.
GC techies
These folks were more than happy to hand us our i-pads and direct us to a table with carrying cases for them.
GC Displays
Right behind the registration booths, we enter the exhibit halls….

GC row 3
There are many rows of many booths with information, items for sale and great beauty in the displays and the people.
GC Silver
You can purchase Beautiful Silver for your altar.
GC relax
You can even find a place to relax, listen to music and experience a piece of The Jesus Movement
I even found a place for one of my favorite past-times…Coloring! There are several walls and permanent markers and coloring books and colored pencils and coffee and chocolate… at the Episcopal Relief and Development Booth!

Besides the exhibit hall,  There are jumbo-sized rooms for the House of Deputies and a Worship Space.  There are large rooms for the House of Bishops and for the ECW (Episcopal Church Women) Triennial.  There are medium and small sized rooms in the hotels for various groups to meet and listen and create and revise resolutions.  There are chapels and offices and places for spiritual and pastoral care.

GC July 4H
Happy 4th of July ya’ll!
