Tony and Val Short were All Saints' delegates at the 201st Convention.
The 201st Annual Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina convened on Friday, November 18, 2016, at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh. Aptly titled “Equipping the Saints,” this year’s gathering focused on practical ideas and resources geared toward helping congregations and individuals embrace the diocesan priorities of evangelism and reconciliation.
This year’s Convention also kicked off our bicentennial year and introduced two exciting projects to help us celebrate in collaboration with the Dioceses of Western North Carolina and East Carolina.
Other highlights included the Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple’s Pastoral Address, panel discussions addressing ministries and reconciliation efforts throughout the Diocese, a food drive hosted by A Movable Feast and a look at the next steps in our search for the XII Bishop Diocesan. It all kicked off with a special Thursday night history presentation, “The Times They Were A-changing: Equipping the Saints and Lifting Every Voice in the Turbulent 1960s,” led and hosted by diocesan historiographer the Rev. Dr. Brooks Graebner and joined by panelists Martha Alexander and the Rev. Dr. Rhonda Lee.
