The House of Bishops gathers for its annual meeting this week, this year in Phoenix, Arizona. The meeting starts tomorrow. The topics they plan to tackle are immigration and evangelism. The theme of this meeting will be "Changing Contexts for God's Mission: What is the New Invitation?"
While there has been some controversy about the wisdom of meeting in Phoenix after the passage of the state's draconian immigration law, Bishop Kirk Smith of Arizona told Episcopal Life Online that he is pleased that the House of Bishops has come to Arizona "to experience first hand the immigration crisis by visiting the border, talking with people involved on both sides of the issue, and by praying with those most affected. It will be a time to put human faces on justice issues."
At the close of the House of Bishops meeting there will be a Press Conference, via phone, in which usually the Presiding Bishop and two or three other bishops take questions. Participants will be announced later. Integrity USA will be represented on that call on Septemebr 21st. If you have a question you would like us to ask, please send it in BEFORE September 21st and we will do our best to get you an answer.
