Today was the big stuff. We received the Budget for the next three years, which will be debated and voted on tomorrow, and we began work on Legislation from the Special Committee dealing with the Windsor Report. For a variety of reasons, I personally support a strong affirmation of the request to the Episcopal Church made in this Report, and so am hardly impartial in reporting much about the debate. The first Resolution, dealing with an expression of regret, was modified slightly and sent to the House of Bishops. We recessed for the day without completing debate on the next resolution, concerning blessings and Consecrations, and will finish that one up in the morning, we all hope. Results may well be in the news well before the day is out on Tuesday. Pray, always, for our Church.

There is no telling who you will run into in the halls--including the President of the House of Deputies ...and the Presiding Bishop.
Or grabbing a quick lunch between sessions. And no photo series would be complete without the Rev. Dr. Gregory Straub, Executive Officer and Secretary of Convention.
Or our own Betty Gilmore. As the Co-Chairs of the Special Committee presented their report...
...and the Chaplain began our deliberations with prayer... ...Deputies began paying careful attention.
I can't resist chronicling my maiden voyage the microphone... ...to address the House of Deputies. I do apologize for the size of the pictures.
