Turning Toward Debate and Decisions

The work of the General Convention turns from committees to the House of Deputies and the House of Bishops on this fifth legislative day of the meeting.

The Very Rev. William Willoughby, III is projected on the screens at the front of the hall as he addresses the House of Deputies. Below, Mary Willoughby speaks to another resolution.

On the fifth legislative day the work of the House of Deputies is shifting from a focus on legislative hearings and the crafting of budget and resolutions to the work of hearing, debating, and voting on resolutions as a House of more than eight hundred members.

The Diocese of Georgia has been represented in several committees: Formation and Education for Ministry, Program Budget and Finance, Credentials, Evangelism and Communications, and Ecumenical and Interreligious Relations.

Deputy Molly Stevenson shared her enthusiasm for the work to date noting that The Evangelism and Communications Committee has worked diligently and efficiently to produce resolutions that encourage approaching evangelism in a 21st century way employing social media and technology and equipping both clergy and laity in its use.
