General Convention Day 2

July 7, 2009

Today was the warm-up before the game.

We had an orientation meeting for the House of Deputies (comprised of both lay and clergy deputies from each Diocese).

Here’s a pic of Boo Penniwell, SC Deputy from Holy Cross at the entrance to the main hall:

The hall is massive and we are seated by Diocese.  South Carolina’s table is right down front, literally, just a few feet from the dias:

Here’s a shot of our deputation:

Large screens fill the front.  Here’s a deputy from Minnesota.  I guess they wear interesting headware in the land of ice and snow:

The Rev’d Gay Jennings, a deputy from the Diocese of Ohio, and the Canon the the Ordinary (Personnel department) when I was in Ohio led us through the orientation.  Gay ran a great convention when I was in the Diocese of Ohio.  She did a good job walking us through the parlimentary issues here as well:

Lastly, here’s what we vote with – apparently, it will give instantaneous results viewable on the screens:

Well, the fun starts tomorrow.  I am a legislative monitor for the “World Missions” committee.  We’ll see what that means.

Good night from Anaheim
