Our local “hub” to stay connected and share updates about the 78th General Convention of the Episcopal Church is through the blog, where each day a new post will be opened with:

Current Day’s aGeneral Conventiongenda

Worship leaders and liturgy

Live blogging open sessions of Houses of Bishops and Deputies

Live blogging of daily media events (add your questions)

Links to any posting by diocesan members in Salt Lake City

You, too, can sign in to the live streaming of both houses and worship on the blog tab: “Media Hub.” If you have some morning or afternoon time and fancy a turn at live blogging, email Beth Felice and she will help get you set up.

A small but faithful percentage of Episcopalians tweet. The right-hand column of each page on the blog displays real-time posts that are marked “#GC78“–the community hashtag for this General Convention. If you tweet, add this tag.

The Convention runs from June 25 through July 3.
