Snapshots from General Convention 2006

This will be the first page of what I hope will be many photographs from the 75th General Convention of the Episcopal Church in Columbus, Ohio. I will try to update this page, and the "How We See It" page, daily during Convention. It is my prayer that these pages will help our Diocese share with its Deputies in the experience of General Convention, and that they will enrich all of us as we grow in appreciation of, and service through, this wonderful Church God has blessed us with.
The first day was mostly orientation and getting located. The Exhibit Hall was open today, and most of the exhibitors were set up for business, although more will be arriving in the next few days. A high point for me was Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold's remarks, which can be found here and are well worth a read. Our National Church is doing a great job of getting things up on the General Convention News Website up and running, and it has very current offerings.
|This sign in the Columbus Convention Center pretty much makes it official, we are here.||Here is the first of a series of shots of our Bishop and Deputies--Jackie and Kelsey will be in the next one.|
|What I most love about the Exhibit Hall is how it reveals the||truly wonderful diversity of people and perspectives that make up our Church.|
|We do not dictate where your walk with Christ will take you;||but we can pretty much promise you companions, and respect, along the way.|
