Saturday Evening Post

I serve on the Deputies Committee on Structure - we're about half way through some proposals to streamline our governance and structure to enhance the mission we're called to do. One resolution reported out of the Committee was also adopted by the Deputies: sell the Episcopal Church Center building at 815 Second Avenue - hopefully as soon as the 78th General Convention in 2015. I trust the Bishop's will concur. This action came as a piece of the restructuring sentiment that is in the air. The open hearing the Structure Committee held two nights ago had 40 people repeatedly call for a Church that is more nimble, Missional and adaptive. The Committee is in the midst of crafting a resolution that captures the hopes and calls from forty dioceses (WMA included) for a Mission-focused structure. We need to find a process to build a structure that better serves a Church grounded in the Five Marks of Mission. I'll be following along with all of you how we do. Go Church Go - discover the Missional movement of the Spirit and Go. - Bill Coyne
