Convention now hard at work on resolutions

The Rev. Joe Bowden MD addresses the chair to ask that every session begin with prayer, rather than only beginning and ending the day with meditations and prayer.

Almost all of the more than 400 resolutions to be considered by the General Convention have been through hearings to garner input into the work of the committees. Now the committees are perfecting the resolutions based on that input. The House of Deputies had passed 111 resolutions as of this morning. Some of the most watched work of the Convention will soon land with either the House of Deputies or the House of Bishops (whichever is the “house of initial action” for the matter). These matters include the proposed budget which we hear blends the Executive Council budget first distributed, the Presiding Bishop’s proposed budget and work by Program, Budget & Finance on aligning their budget with the Five Marks of Mission. Also soon to come for consideration are the resolutions on a Proposed Rite of Same Sex Blessings and an omnibus resolution packaging the ideas of 49 restructuring proposals brought forward in resolutions, includimg one for the Diocese of Georgia.
