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.

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.
Since 1976, our church has been moving toward recognizing the “full and equal claim” of LGBTQ persons in the life of the church. Here we have an opportunity to march onward. The task force has given us lots to think about, and plenty to do.
