Much of today was spent on the floor of Convention, moving slowly through mostly inconsequential legislation. We also held elections for a couple of Church-wide offices. Meanwhile, the long awaited Resolutions on things like 2006 B-033, the revision of Title IV (the disciplinary Canons of the Church), mandatory lay pensions, and the Church-Wide health insurance plan are winding their way through Committees and will be coming up next week. One of today's highlights the visit of half a dozen international guests of House of Deputies' President Bonnie Anderson. The gave a very positive view of the way the American Church is viewed in the wider Anglican Communion.
|A word or two on the Anaheim Convention Center. The place is huge, with three levels of meeting rooms.||There are plenty of long corridors on each of the three levels.|
Fr. Francis Wade, the Chaplain of Convention, gives some very well-done reflections and meditations.
|Jenny Te Paa from New Zealand was one of many impressive international guests.|
|The dais at Convention displays all of the national flags where the Episcopal Church is found||and our deputation has a second mascot.|
