ENS: Executive Council begins three-day meeting

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The Episcopal Church's 2010-2012 budget and a response to the St. Andrew's Draft of the proposed Anglican Covenant topped the agenda January 29 as the church's Executive Council convened a three day meeting in Stockton, California.

The meeting is taking place in the seat of the Episcopal Diocese of San Joaquin, a move made by the council to show its support for the diocese's efforts at reorganization since the former leadership and a majority of its members joined the Argentina-based Anglican Province of the Southern Cone. Council members are scheduled to spend time on January 30 hearing about the progress made by the diocese.

Council began its meeting January 29 with an organizational plenary session, followed by private conversation. Council members, Episcopal Church Center staff and visitors celebrated Eucharist at midday. Members also devoted another hour to Council's on-going effort to participate in the church's anti-racism training effort.

The churches are lovely, faithful and asleep,
But I have property to keep,
And priests to inhibit before I sleep,
And bishops to depose before I sleep

The libs have gathered to innovate, innovate, innovate. Mark Harris will probably read one of his many unappreciated poems and the several LGBTs present will wonder why they can’t get people to understand them better. In the name of us all, they’ll probably feel led to join us to some advocacy organization just to assuage their inability to control the mess that they’ve made.

Pageantmaster’s verse reminds us that the new North American Province should have a poet laureate - otherwise, we may all begin to sound like the ecclesiastical bureaucrats of the Episcopal Organization.

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Pagentmaster and Jim the Puritan, bittersweet LOL!
Already left, of course there will be “dispositions”, no doubt of the malign and defiled variety!  Likely depositions as well.
