We are called to proclaim God’s love not just in our familiar churches — standing just inside our red doors to be nice to visitors — but we are also called to proclaim God’s love on the streets, in the mall, on the beach, in the workplace, on the border, in all the places of greatest need. We are called to be witnesses.
We have a catechetical crisis in our church. Vast swaths of our laity and not a few clergy are unable to articulate even the most rudimentary understanding of either baptism or eucharist.
Today we look at a few liturgical resolutions that have come from dioceses. These concern saints, prayer book revision, new liturgies, and more. Stay tuned to Blue’s Clues for more posts as resolutions appear.
Here we consider a boatload of resolutions on politics and public policy. These are all submitted by bishops, dioceses, and deputies. At the end, I look at a few resolutions that commend worthy organizations.
This post covers resolutions dealing with various and sundry matters connected to the Episcopal Church — policies, canons, programs, and so on. This also marks the first post to go beyond the Blue Book to look at stuff from bishops, dioceses, deputies, and others.
In this final installment of blog posts covering the Blue Book of General Convention, we look at the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music’s proposals for prayer book revision, occasional services, translations, saints, and more.
In the third post looking at the famously acronymed SCSGCC, we glance at what they did NOT do. This is the penultimate post in our series on the Blue Book resolutions. Stay tuned for the season finale!
This is the second post about the Standing Commission on Structure, Governance, Constitution, and Canons. This deals with almost 30 resolutions, finishing out the 50 they proposed. The next post will deal with other parts of the SCSGCC report.
This is the first of what I think will be three (!) installments on the FIFTY resolutions and other comments that have come from the Standing Commission on Structure, Governance, Constitution and Canons. Canon geeks, rejoice!
Every three years the House of Deputies Committee on the State of the Church tells us how we’re doing. Here’s their report, with several resolutions intended to improve the life and ministry of our church. Read on…
The House of Bishops has two committees which have submitted reports, theology and pastoral development. In the latter report, there are proposals for a new canon to remove impaired bishops. It’s a good start but needs work.
