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.
This blog offers a view of the convention and beyond from the perspective of Lydia Evans, a two-time lay deputy from the Diocese of South Carolina.

as well as pre- and post-convention coverage.
Thank you for remembering the convention deputies and their families in your prayers. For further resources, visit my webpages.

From this morning's Columbus Dispatch

On page C6 of the morning paper (dropped outside my door at 5:30 am by an above-and-beyond hotel employee, along with the ever-present USA Today), there is an article on GC2006 which I cannot yet find available on-line. Regarding the Special Committee hearing on Tuesday on resolutions, it reads, in part,

'During discussions, the resolution raised for some on the panel the issue of the church's autonomy versus its interdependence in the communion.

"At what point do we submit our autonomy to order our life to the wisdom of the communion as a whole?" asked Bishop Edward Little, of Indiana.'

I'm sure Kendall will have this article up on TitusOneNine soon.

I'm off to hear testimony before the Social and Urban Affairs committee on reparations.
