Presiding bishop's video message to houses of General Convention

Posted Jan 26, 2012

[Office of Public Affairs] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has issued a video message to the House of Deputies and the House of Bishops on the topic of the July General Convention.

“I want to challenge this church to look forward and outward, rather than focusing inward and backward,” she says in her communiqué.

Citing the five Marks of Anglican Mission, the presiding bishop states, “The church doesn’t have a mission; God’s mission has a church.”

The video message is the initial message that the presiding bishop will offer leading up to General Convention.

The message is available on the presiding bishop’s page of the Episcopal Church website here.
