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!

This is the last report in the “Task Forces of General Convention” section of the Blue Book. Fear not, church geeks, we have plenty more to go. But today, as we finish up this section, let us celebrate. I’ve saved what might be the best task force report for last.
One of the most contested topics among Episcopal church wonks is whether we should pay the President of the House of Deputies. Today we look at the task force report of those who delved into this question. And your intrepid blogger offers an opinion.
The task force proposes a resolution which “welcomes with joy the request of the sisters and brothers of the Episcopal Church in Cuba to reunite with the Episcopal Church.” My hope is that this resolution is passed and that our churches reunite for the glory of God and so that we may together proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
