Here Comes General Convention!

(from the outside looking in) by Pastor Jocelynn Hughes General Convention begins in Indianapolis on July 4th. This is a big event that happens every three years when representatives from the entire Episcopal Church gather for about two weeks to make decisions about the life and governance of our denomination. Like the US government, we have two houses of representatives: the House of Bishops (Bishops) and the House of Deputies (clergy and laity from each Diocese).
