After morning prayer, we moved into legislative session and began the business of starting convention, and a tedious business it was.
As anyone who has been to a legislative convention knows, there is a good deal of parliamentary procedure that ha to take place so we can begin considering business. We also took the time to recognize military chaplains, seminarians and postulants, and youth and young delagates. I was very pleased to see the number of youth delegates sent by their parishes. Sadly there were fewer delagates between the ages of 20 and 30 than there were high schoolers. Only two of us in that age group were not seminarians. This is clearly an area the episcopal church need to work on.
We followed this session with a viewing of a film called "Traces of the Trade.". It is a rather profound movie documenting one families attempts to com to terms with their slave trading history. It was a fantastic movie and I would recommend it to anyone and will post a more complete reflection later.
