Episcopal News Service has announced the 2007 Polly Bond Award winners honored yesterday at the annual meeting of Episcopal Communicators . Integrity was thrilled with the news that "Voices of Witness" -- the documentary produced in collaboration with our Claiming the Blessing partners -- received the award for excellence in the video/DVD category! [ENS, Virginia Beach] Episcopal communications -- from a balsa hand glider imprinted for Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori's investiture, to disaster recovery news stories, webcast Advent Meditations and an Episcopal Life bag -- were among Polly Bond Award-winning entries at an April 26 evening Episcopal Communicators banquet.

"I can't get over some of the valiant efforts I see all over the Anglican Communion to communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a gospel of inclusion and new life that the whole world is desperate to hear," Canon Jim Rosenthal told the gathering of Episcopal Communicators at Virginia Beach's Cavalier Hotel. About 120 communicators are attending the April 25-28 annual meeting of church professionals from parishes, dioceses and national agencies across the country.
