General Convention Blog

This is a blog for conversation about the Episcopal Church General Convention in Columbus, Ohio, June 12-22. It is set up by the Rev. Lowell Grisham, clergy deputy from the Diocese of Arkansas.

Each day I'll post one or more emails about the GC. In addition to news, I'll post brief summaries about sermons, meditations, and teachings that are part of the event, as well as reflections about the ministry and energy of Convention.

Blog comments are welcome.

I'll send my first post sometime around June 12.

I just wanted to say how proud i am of the vestrys suport of aceptance in all people by the possablity of a rite of blessing to our committed same-gender couples. Who are we to denigh some one a promis they give befor God with there hearts and souls. I belive that in life we must strive for happiness. If this happiness harms no other pysicaly then where is the harm. God dosn't make mistakes in who we are. I have many alternative life friends, i love them dearly they are amoung of the best parnets, parishners, friends, teachers, people out there. I am proud to be a part of an acepting congregation. I know not every one can agree on this touchy subject . but can't we all agree that the Bible teaches us to accept , love one another. I find it no difrent then refusing a blessing becuase of color of skin or lauqe of wealth. Dosen't each culture have a ritual for marige? We must accept as easly as we accept there are other cultures, that same gender love is love just like you or i feel, they are humans, people just like us. Arn't we all difrent from eachother. Wouldn't the world be boring if we where all the same. Any way no matter what your belife is on this subject you are intitled to it. I just feel very stronly on it. I am a very strainge human being, at least most thing that. St. Pauls has taken my hand and heart and been there for me in all times. I am greatful they expet this exentric person so easily so i can worship as i need to.
God bless you all, Jen
