General Convention 2006

Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling. Then I will go to the altar of God, and I will praise you . . . Psalm 43:3-4

The Blue Book is here (and it's Green!)

The famous General Convention Blue Book arrived in my mailbox during Holy Week. Talk about timing! I definitely did not need another distraction in a week in which all my attention should be focused on the Cross.

I tried to resist. But like a bowl of rich, creamy Bluebell ice cream, I was powerless. I had to get inside and go to work with my highlighter. What resolutions from the CCABs were bound to generate lots of attention at this convention?

By the way, this convention's Blue Book is actually a Green Book -- with an optimistic theme to match -- Come and Grow.

Hi Lydia, congrats on your new endeavor.

I don't have a copy of the blue/green book, but have been watching closely the resolutions and revisions to the canon to disclipline the laity.

Scary stuff that, especially as it is little by little explained on a "secure" list.

See what you think OK/

I like the look of your blog. I pray that God will bless it and use it.

Come and Grow is an optimistic theme, but I think growth will happen. Growth will come through great spiritual distress and struggle. Be sure to have some faithful people praying and fasting for you while you are in Columbus.
