Learning and Listening

Posted on

Today was my first full day in Austin, so I spent some time in the morning exploring before the Exhibit Hall opened at 11 a.m. I am helping host an exhibit table for The Episcopal Network for Economic Justice (ENEJ), which is part of a larger network in The Episcopal Church called “The Consultation”.

As part of my role for ENEJ, I attended and listened to a couple of resolution hearings that addressed socially responsible investing. I am still very much learning my way around how resolutions get presented and dealt with, but the discussion was quite interesting.

I was excited to attend a reception presented by The Episcopal Peace Fellowship (EPF), an organization I’ve supported for some time. Our Diocesan Social Justice Network has been talking about ways we might encourage more people and parishes in our diocese to get involved in the important work done by EPF.
