General Convention will be here in just a little over a month. Along with many of our VTS colleagues, the Center for Anglican Communion Studies will be there, hosting two separate events. The first event will be a Fourth of July barbecue, hosted in partnership with The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepard, where VTS alumna Rev. Shannon Preston is the Priest for Spiritual Formation. This event is to welcome the international guests that the Episcopal Church office has invited to Convention.
The second CACS event, which is open to everyone, is a panel conversation on “Race in the Communion: Lessons from World Anglicanism.” This discussion will be held on Thursday, July 5th from 2:00-3:30 PM at the JW Marriot Hotel. The panel discussion will feature voices from around the Communion reflecting on how different contexts experience and understand racial discord, as well as how they seek to resource reconciling practices. The Rev. Dr. Robert Heaney, CACS Director, and Mr. Maurice Dyer, VTS M.Div class of 2019, will facilitate the discussion.
This event is open to all. Please invite your friends and colleagues to join us for this important dialogue. No RSVP is required. Feel free to email the Center at firstname.lastname@example.org with anyquestions.
The Rev. Robert Heaney, Ph.D.,D.Phil. Director of the Center for Anglican Communion Studies and Associate Professor of Christian Mission
