PIV gathers as family at Kanuga

Province IV welcomed more than 200 deputies, presenters and guests to its 2014 convocational Synod June 4-6 at Kanuga Conference Center, near Hendersonville, NC. Deputies heard mid-triennial reports on a variety of topics, including TREC (Task Force Reimagining the Episcopal Church) and the Study of Marriage Task Force, and spent time in workshops learning about the church's work against Human Trafficking, Episcopal Relief & Development, and a number of provincial networks.

Deputies affirmed a request from the Executive Committee to give $2,500 to the re-emerging Episcopal Church in South Carolina and to look for other opportunities to assist the growing diocese; the offering at the Synod Eucharist (some $1,700) also was designated for the Episcopal Church in South Carolina.

Above, PIV President Angela Daniel (center) laughs with representatives (Ronza Williams and Shana Goodwin) from the Magdalene program and Thistle Farms in Nashville, Tenn., a safe house and residential program for women who were formerly addicts and/or prostitutes.

 

Here, above, deputies to Synod greet each other in one of several exercises designed to get people talking to their neighbors in other dioceses.
