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.


Family Reunion Time Again

The Diocese of Georgia gathers this evening for its 189th annual convention. We will meet in Savannah. The convention will set the diocesan budget for this year and will vote on admitting King of Peace and St. Luke's, Hawkinsville as parishes of the Diocese. A yes vote is anticipated to both requests. Details on the convention business are online here: The 189th Diocesan Convention.

Bishop BenhaseBut beyond all the business, and there will be a FULL day of it tomorrow, we gather as a family when we get together with the rest of the Diocese. This will also be our first convention with Bishop Scott Benhase as our bishop.

Victoria (who ends a term on Diocesan Council) and I will be on hand together with King of Peace's delegates, June Maxwell, Bill Bruce, and Celeste McCullough to reestablish old relationships and make new ones with our fellow Episcopalians in this corner of the kingdom. It's always tiring and always fun. The convention will end with ordinations on Saturday, including of Iane Sastre to the Sacred Order of Deacons. Iane will be ordained to the priesthood after serving at least six months as a transitional deacon.

The Rev. Frank Logue, Vicar (soon to be Rector)
