Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Grow in Grace

Alongside the General Convention of the Episcopal Church is the triennial meeting of the Episcopal Church Women. Their theme this meeting is Grow in Grace. Today, our diocesan offering for the United Thank Offering was given by Carolyn Gay at the main Eucharist for the two meetings (ECW and GC).

Pictured here is Marcie Cherau of the Diocese of Georgia who is on the National ECW Board. She is a nominee for National ECW President. The election will be held tomorrow (Monday, July 13).

Meanwhile, the House of Deputies has a light day this Sunday. We worshipped with thousands of others from the nearby area in the main Eucharist. Next we head into a 2-6 p.m. afternoon legislative session. Ahead are weighty issues including whether to drop or change the current moratoria in place on Same sex blessings and ordinations, tough decisions about the budget in tightening economic times, and much more. We are now one day behind on legislation and needing to roll up our sleeves and get to the hard work of this meeting.

Please pray for your Diocese of Georgia deputation and the whole convention.
