An Historical Perspective on Decisions Facing the 75th General Convention of the Episcopal Church
General Convention is the crafting of an appropriate response to the Anglican Communion and the Windsor Report. Whereas the Special Commission on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion has proposed, within a thought-provoking theological perspective, a set of 11 resolutions for consideration by General Convention, there is also a broader historical context that should be taken into account by those who must vote on these resolutions, on variations of them, or on replacement resolutions that have or might be proposed. By no means does the 75th General Convention have a simple job to do in responding to events set in motion by the 74th General Convention, we need to bring a wide range of theological perspectives and a careful understanding of church history to bear as we chart the best course for the Episcopal Church to pursue.
