Boots on the Ground
We are now underway with committee meetings and hearings on resolutions taking up most of the day. There is also a daily Eucharist service and legislative sessions. A host of resolutions are being considered. I am serving on the Dispatch of Business Committee, which functions like air traffic controllers for the meeting. Molly is on the missions committee and Billy+ has been involved with preparations for the convention as well as in committee work. There are others here from the Diocese of Georgia as volunteers, as visitors and also as participants in the Episcopal Church Women's triennial meeting, which runs concurrently.
My lunch break is over and I am heading back to the National and International Concerns Committee to assist them in getting their legislation through the convention (traffic control). We will work to get some updates from myself and others from the Diocese of Georgia. If possible, I will move those to the Diocese of Georgia website. In the meantime, know that the Diocese of Georgia has "boots on the ground" and we are here praying, listening, commenting and voting on matters that can greatly effect our denomination. Please pray for us as we seek to faithfully represent the diocese we love.
The Rev. Frank Logue, C1 Deputy, Georgia
