The Larger Conversation

The Larger Conversation debuts with Care for Creation

Behind the scenes, your deputation to General Convention co-chairs have been putting finishing touches on a monthly web chat called The Larger Conversation.

The goal of this monthly conversation is two-fold.

  • To unpack with love some of the shipping container of 500+ resolutions from the most recent General Convention, by topics that participating delegates to last diocesan convention chose as “most interesting.”
  • To facilitate a space for inter-parish discussion in these areas of ministry and stewardship; how we are engaged, hope to be engaged, or just interested in learning more.

The chats will take place the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7-8 pm CT.

First episode on Creation Care is Tuesday, April 23, from 7-8 pm CT.

Read more about the episode, explore the episode’s linked resources, or read the overview of this project (including a “how-to” for first time users of Zoom). This month’s hosts are deputation co-chairs the Rev. Tamsen Whistler and Betty Bowersox.

Each topic will be explored in two episodes, the first is a wrap-up of primary legislation in the topic, and a few of illustrating stories from around this diocese and the wider church. The second episode is more of a conversation around local expressions of and reactions to these ministries and stewardship engagement.

Join the conversation!
