The General Convention of The Episcopal Church begins July 5 and continues through July 13. St. John’s parishioner Billy Kingery is one of this summer’s lay deputies, and will be sending updates over the next couple weeks which we’ll post here on We Gather.
Following are resources for following General Convention (hover for hyperlinks):
Two television shows will be broadcast from GC79, one in English (“Inside General Convention”) and one in Spanish (“Adentro de la convención general”) – they can both be found here (read more, including the press release announcement and bios of the hosts, on the Episcopal Cafe here).
If you’re on social media, follow and use the #GC79 hashtag to be part of informal conversations at and around General Convention.
