document download | Synopis of Friday afternoon Table Talk
The Duvall Center staff sifted and sorted all the post-it notes looking for themes and ideas to direct our work. Some of these ideas might make for a good vestry conversation about your church’s local ministry. As an aside, we heard many comments about the usefulness of the Friday afternoon table talk. We intend to hold similar conversation at next year’s Convention.

After the Convention Bishop Russell convened a meeting of the Diocesan Commission/Task Force Chairs. He passed out a list of their membership. He asked each Chair to contact their members, schedule a meeting within 45 days, create an “elevator speech” purpose statement for their respective ministry, and set a couple of goals to guide their work. Bishop Russell is pleased and grateful to report that every Commission and Task Force has done so. Good work is going on and he wanted to share it with you!
