|The Salt Palace, where Episcopalians will gather June 25-July 3|
In a few hours I'll be heading to Logan Airport and then on to Salt Lake City for the 78th General Convention of The Episcopal Church. This is a triennial bicameral gathering of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies - the HOD includes four clergy and four lay deputies from each diocese of our denomination, plus alternates. (If you want to be a church geek and learn lots more, check out this site as a good place to begin the journey.) General Convention is a big extended family gathering with important work that also unfolds!
Our deputies from Western Mass will be blogging here. We've set up a rota so that each of us will take a turn over the course of the next eleven days. I'll be part of that rota and may also write some short posts here as well. As mentioned in a recent post I am excited that this is my second time around and I ask for your prayers as we undertake this work, hopefully not just for the sake of our denomination but for the wider mission of God's work in the world.
