Happy Summer Good Shepherd,

I am writing to you from the 78th General convention in Salt Lake Utah. The Episcopal Church gathers every three years to do the work of the church. We gather in two houses: the House of Bishops, and the House of Deputies. Every thing that becomes church law, or changes in our church has to be voted on, and has to recieve two thirds approval in both houses. Each diocese brings 4 ordained, and 4 lay deputies. I am the 1st alternate, so when someone get sick, or has another responsibility, I join our delegation as a voting deputy. There is a lot to read and know, and I am very glad that our delegation is very experienced!I am learning how to be a deputy, it's both very demanding, and very exciting.

We will be electing a new presiding Bishop and considering the reorganizing of the national church structure. You can find more information at the General convention website. There is worship every day and lots of extra hearings and meeting to attend. Our delegation are on a lot of high level committees, because they are very experienced. It is overwhelming and very cool.

I can't wait to be back home and tell you all about it. Enjoy the beautiful weather and know your in my prayers.

God bless,
Fr. Mike
