Convention to be streamed live

By Episcopal Journal

General Convention will be shared throughout the wider church through a comprehensive “media hub” that is accessible on home computers via the internet. The hub features numerous live streaming and on-demand features of the convention. The URL address is: www.episcopalchurch.org/general-convention-2018-media-hub.

The church will share the legislative sessions in both the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies in the media hub. The General Convention Office, the Episcopal Church web, IT and communications experts along with the Public Affairs Office have designed the hub to bring complete coverage of how the church conducts its business to Episcopalians throughout the world.

A call to artists focuses on care of God’s creation

By Episcopal Journal

Episcopal artists are asked to portray the effects of changing weather and climate in the next online exhibition planned for this fall by Episcopal Church & Visual Arts.

Titled “The Fragile Earth,” the exhibition will display artwork that creates “a visual conversation regarding our fragile earth and our stewardship of all with which we have been blessed,” said curator Kathy Thaden, a Colorado artist.

Criteria for submissions can be found on the Calls to Artists page of the organization’s website, www.ecva.org. The deadline for submissions is Aug. 15. Submissions should be sent by e-mail to entry@ecva.org.
