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 General Convention of the Episcopal Church
met in Columbus, Ohio from June 11-21, 2006.

"General Convention: Part Legislature, Part Family Reunion"

The Episcopal Church, in preparation for the upcoming General Convention, has made available these informative bulletin inserts for use in your parish. See the June 11th insert here. See all seven inserts here.

Designed to give your parishioners a clearer understanding of Episcopal Church governance, they seek to shed light on the role of convention deputies, outlining a few of the prickly issues bound to crop up at GC2006, and enabling us all to better live in the tension between mutual interdependence and provincial autonomy.

The General Convention -- part legislature, part family reunion. See you in Columbus!
