[Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs] The House of Bishops of the Episcopal Church is meeting in retreat at the Camp Allen Conference & Retreat Center in Navasota, Texas (Diocese of Texas) from March 16 to March 20.  The following is an account of the activities for Sunday, March 18.

The spring retreat meeting of the Episcopal Church House of Bishops continues the House’s ongoing theme of The Church for the 21st Century, with a focus on The Gift of Episcope/El Don el Episopado. The schedule calls for prayer-filled sessions, and bishops participate in daily Bible study, reflection and worship.

The morning began with Eucharist celebrated by Bishop Geralyn Wolfe of Rhode Island.

A meditation and reflection on Pastoral Care was presented by Bishop Porter Taylor of Western North Carolina who concluded with the well-loved Prayer of St. Francis.

The afternoon was devoted to Sabbath time.  The bishops will engage in private discussion during the evening.

    We hope the bishops will be discussing the greying of our congregations and the startling demographic changes in our nation. We don’t exactly have a long time to ponder the connection.
