GENERAL CONVENTION 7/5/18 DAY 4 (COMMITTEE HEARINGS, House of Deputies Legislative Session)

What a day! I saw many old friends, made new friends, and I believe I am starting to get into the swing of Convention!  I feel like I am learning so much about how the legislative process works at the national level.  What a joy to be a part of this incredible process.

Early this morning we started the day with a legislative session with the House of Deputies in session.  Several administrative type Resolutions were addressed and voted upon.  Later, we worshipped together at the Opening Eucharist.  Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preached an incredible sermon!  The music was fantastic, and the Holy Spirit was nudging this church to a new day of evangelism!

 

 

 

Later in the day, the “Evangelism and Church Planting Committee” held joint hearings for several pieces of legislation we are putting forward.  We held a hearing at 2:15pm and another at 7:30 pm.

I learned so much about our efforts in Church planting throughout the Episcopal Church, and I am so excited about how these amazing pioneers are welcoming all of us into the conversation.  There is so much we in the existing parishes can learn from these pioneering community developers.  Here are a few links you might find interesting:

After a long day, I am both exhausted and exhilarated.  We are a part of an amazing church.  We are the Episcopal branch of the “Jesus Movement!”

Peace,

Fr. Eric+
