Executive Council and the Pension Fund agree to regular consultations

the Executive Council of The Episcopal Church and the Church Pension Fund (CPF) Board of Trustees will hold at least four consultations between the 80th and 81st General Conventions (2022 and 2024, respectively). These gatherings will address mutual policy concerns posed by changing demographics, changing understandings of church in society, and changing expectations of and for clergy—including current and retired lay employees of The Episcopal Church.  

Lori Walton: Birds on a Wire

As I marveled at this, a new bird flew up and sat on the wire – only this one was facing the opposite direction.  “That’s me”, I thought – the one who is always turned around, never quite facing the right way.  But, in less than a second, that bird hopped up, turned around, and landed on the wire facing the same direction as the rest of the birds.  Soon, another bird arrived, and then another, and the same thing happened each time: the bird landed facing the wrong direction, hopped up, and turned around.
