[Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs] Becoming A Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society: An Adaptive Moment, a proposal to address and discuss potential restructuring of the Episcopal Church, is available for viewing here or here.
Presented by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and Bishop Stacy Sauls, Chief Operating Officer of the Episcopal Church, Becoming A Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society: An Adaptive Moment is being shared pursuant to Canon I.2.4, which charges the Presiding Bishop with “responsibility for leadership in initiating and developing the policy and strategy in the Church.”
“The presentation represents thoughts and ideas from conversations with many other dedicated, committed people throughout the church.” Sauls said, “The idea is to spark conversation about our future.”
Addressing the concerns and needs of dioceses and congregations, Becoming A Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society: An Adaptive Moment offers an examination of the Episcopal Church’s governance mechanisms, funding, and resource allocation and asks for a discussion on all levels of the Church.
