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

met in Columbus, Ohio from June 11-21, 2006.

Don't Ever Change...

The Worldwide Episcopal Communion Welcomes You
(to stay just as you are)



All week long, we've been hearing that ECUSA is no longer.
Call us The Episcopal Church from now on, thank you. It's a name which takes into account the true identity of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society as an international Church.

The backdrop to the dais in the House of Deputies includes, for the first time ever, sixteen flags -- one for each of the nations represented in the WEC, oops! I mean, The Episcopal Church.

We've gone global. To borrow a line from the Lone Star State, don't mess with TEC.

What is the "Episcopal Communion"?

Dear David,

The Episcopal Communion is what ECUSA can call itself at the point which it is found outside the Communion. Then, all of this positioning that seems to be taking place -- the 'international' Episcopal Church and so forth -- will result in TEC saying to the Communion, "We have no need of you. We are our own universe."
