Day Two Recap – so much is happening!

Here are a few highlights from today’s second official day of General Convention. This is just a snapshot – if you’re interested in learning more – check out the Episcopal News Service articles, and The Episcopal Church’s Media Hub (TONS of great stuff here – including some videos and live-streams of General Convention!)

Prayer Book Revisions

Revising the Prayer Book is a big topic at General Convention right now.  There’s a resolution being discussed and debated in the House of Deputies – you can read it here. We’re not sure how this might resolve, and what the way forward might be, but what is clear is that the topic feels like it’s at the roots of who we are as Episcopalians.

More to come on this tomorrow (we promise)!

Conversations on Racial Reconciliation

TEConversations are happening throughout General Convention – they’re a compilation of vignettes, speakers, stories, and videos all oriented around a specific topic. Today’s TEConversation featured speakers and videos on the topic of Racial Reconciliation.

We’re not going to debrief it here, because you can actually experience it yourself! The whole thing was live-streamed and is available online.  Click here to watch it yourself.

One highlight from this session: the video from ECMN Convention about Beloved Community was featured during The Rev. Stephanie Speller’s presentation.  Did you see the video?  Click here to check it out!

A new resolutions has been submitted, one with roots in ECMN, addressing the proposed Line 3 pipeline, and its impact on native lands and communities.  Read it here, and thanks to the good work of ECMN leaders in crafting it and doing the good work.

There’s a ton more on the docket, so stay tuned for more reflections, videos, pictures and news!
