GC2012- Thursday, July 5, 2012

After wonderful fellowship and fireworks on the 4th, we all gathered and began the service of our appropriate jobs today.

While the business of the House of Deputies began slowly it is underway with all the formalities and procedural direction. We met in legislative session twice today, with additional times for legislative committees to conduct important business.

My favorite part of the day is always worship. I look forward to the inspiration and message of the Church gathered in common voice. Today's celebrant for the Opening Eucharist was the Presiding Bishop, Katharine Jefforts Schori.The music was most glorious, with trumpets and other brass, soloists, and incredible congregational singing!

Due to a shortened calendar we have made a change in our daily Diocesan discussion time. Kathy Mayer and Jackie Batjer have most graciously arranged our lunch daily, so we have time to share important updates on issues within our committees, and a time of fellowship with our Diocesan friends.
