The nominees then responded to questions from the committee, from bishops, deputies and alternates to General Convention, and from members of Episcopal Church congregations.Johnson said the committee synthesized 186 questions into eight categories with five questions in each group. The categories were leadership matters; theology and liturgy matters; faith-based matters: reconciliation matters; lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual and queer matters; divestment matters; spiritual and self-care matters; and structure matters. The bishops knew the categories ahead of time, but not the specific questions, according to Diocese of Oklahoma Bishop Ed Konieczny, committee co-chair.The four bishops drew color- and number-coded slips from a bowl during each round of questions and were asked one of the five questions in that category. Not every nominee drew all the questions in every category. The questions were asked from the House of Deputies floor by members of the nominating committee, and each began with “Bishop, the church wants to ask …”The opening question to each bishop was specific to the vision each nominee cast in the committee’s materials released May 1. That material is here.Breidenthal was asked how he would, as he had said, make room for people who are on a faith journey, but have not found a place in The Episcopal Church. He replied that first the church has to stop asking the question of how to attract more people into the pews because it is the wrong question.Instead, he said, Episcopalians must understand that they are called into the world where they can be in “true and holy conversation” with those people who have not yet found a place in the church – and be willing to learn from them.And, while Episcopalians rightly pride themselves on being in strong relationships with each other, the tightness of those bonds sometimes means there is little space for others, even Jesus, he said. When Episcopalians get comfortable telling each other the “stories of our faith, stories of our doubt” that space will open and teach people how to see Christ in the stranger.Curry had said the presiding bishop must be two kinds of a CEO: a chief executive officer and a chief evangelism officer. He was asked how he would live into the fiduciary, legal and corporate responsibilities of a chief executive officer while also being the chief evangelism officer. Curry said he would find “the best and most capable people” to run the organization, but he cautioned that just having people “who know how to count and know how to invest and know how to take care of the books is not enough.”“There’s got to be a reason for doing it,” he said, explaining that the reason is to enable the witness to Jesus that must be the center around which the structure of the church is built.Douglas had said he wanted to encourage Episcopalians to discover and participate in what God is doing in the world and in their neighborhoods. “I believe in a God that’s alive, a God who actually meets those who are so much in need of healing and wholeness and new life,” he said when asked to elaborate during the session.This God invites people, by virtue of their baptism, to participate in that healing. “It’s in the world that we are called to be faithful to the new life of God in Christ. So, it’s in our neighborhood where that healing action of God so much needs to be met, celebrated and made real,” he said.Smith was asked about his stated desire to pursue reconciliation that would keep The Episcopal Church as a “theologically big-tent church” without losing the “pastoral and theological gains made in recent years.”He told the session that he would pursue that goal as presiding bishop by being “a bridge builder, a trust builder, to share accountability, to constantly be a source of encouragement, to recognize that God has called me to be an evangelist and a pastor, and to work towards reconciliation which the world constantly needs, to stay connected always to the people in the pews.”He said he wants to be able to work on “turn-around issues” in dioceses and congregations, and in relationships in the Anglican Communion and in The Episcopal Church “so we can journey together in the love of Jesus.”The Rev. David Jackson, a committee member from Hawaii, emceed the session.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori sat in an unmarked visitor section on the side of the hall listening to the session.The rest of election processThe four names will be formally submitted to the General Convention during a joint session on June 26, the day prior to the day set for the election by the House of Bishops of the 27th presiding bishop.On June 27, bishops will gather at the Convention Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. MDT in the Salt Palace Convention Center. Following that, the bishops with seat, voice, and vote will board buses to travel to St. Mark’s Cathedral, where the election will take place in the context of prayer and reflection.Once the election has taken place, Jefferts Schori will send a delegation to Jennings to inform her of the name of the bishop who has been elected. Jennings will refer the name to the House of Deputies legislative committee on the Confirmation of the Presiding Bishop without announcing the name to the full House. The legislative committee will make a recommendation to the House of Deputies whether to confirm the election or not confirm, and the House of Deputies will immediately vote on the recommendation. Jennings will then appoint a delegation of deputies to notify the House of Bishops of the action taken and the presiding bishop-elect will then come to the House of Deputies.No communication was permitted from the House of Bishops during the election and until confirmation was received.The presiding bishop-elect will preach at the convention’s closing Eucharist on July 3, and Jefferts Schori will preside. The presiding bishop-elect’s nine-year term officially begins Nov. 1, 2015.The presiding bishop is primate and chief pastor of the church, chair of the Executive Council, and president of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society.– The Rev.

I also hope their education is outstanding and they have lots of experience in parish work. I haven’t read much about General Convention yet and I haven’t read anything about the pb nominees. The Episcopal church has a reputation for having well rounded clergy extremely well educated, with a good amount of experience in their church work and open attitude toward being up to date in scientific and world affairs. Change comes slowly, but hopefully the Episcopal Church can move faster than we ever have before. Anne Bay says: Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Tampa, FL Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS June 24, 2015 at 11:03 pm I hope this is the last PB elected by these methods. It is secretive and monarchical, not transparent and democratic. We like to brag that our constitution is modeled on the U.S. Constitution, but it’s more like having barons on the Privy Council ramming their choice through the House of Commons at gunpoint, leaving the taxpayers stuck with a sovereign unsuited to our needs. The last one got elected because of her “calming voice” among the screaming factions on the Privy Council, though she cannot communicate the Gospel with clarity to anyone in the Commons, much less the average person on the street. End the secrecy in the House of Bishops. Conduct public ballots in both Houses. Let the winner hire her own CEO, then travel the world as an itinerant evangelist. Better yet, abolish the Houses, go unicameral and livestream the whole convention, not just the curated parts.

Privacy — with room and trees you can create your own private space. “With effective tree planting and creative landscape and design, you can ‘insulate’ your home from roadways an other properties,” Mr Keath said.2. Potential for capital growth — larger blocks of land appreciate more over the longer term because of their scarcity. “It is simple economics that anything rare is worth more,” Mr Keath said.3. Better landscaping — larger frontages give way to more creativity in your landscaping, leading to better street appeal. “A great garden, some nice trees and creative design of the facade of a home on a big block, not only lifts the value of your property, but when every home in the street and neighbourhood does the same it lifts the look, feel and value of the whole estate.”4. Build how you want, and expand as you grow — if money is an issue then with a big block you can start out by building your basic home and then expand as you go.5. Explore your costs upfront — with plenty of room to move you can easily build your home on a large lot to take advantage of the sun, allow for shade, strategically plant trees and capture breezes. Mr Keath said to explore your costs upfront by making sure your design would capture these cost savings.Waterlea will eventually have 1500 lots, a primary school and a range of shopping options and amenities.With a projected population of 4,500 residents, eight neighbourhood villages are planned and will be connected by parks, hiking and bike trails. Large blocks are the way to make money with Waterlea Walloon one of the few estates offering an average size block of 738sq m.BIG blocks are in demand as families realise there are not only lifestyle gains to be made but also financial gold.According to Oliver Hume Queensland managing director Brinton Keath the site you choose is not just a lifestyle investment, but also financial.“One of the biggest factors in determining how much value you can extract from your land is the size,” Mr Keath said.“With prices continually rising in south east Queensland we have seen the average size of blocks decrease, making larger blocks, those greater than 600sq m, increasingly rare.”Waterlea at Walloon has average block sizes of 738sq m with prices starting from $161,000, this compares to nearby estates with average lot sizes of 547sq m or larger masterplanned communities with average sizes of 400sq m.Hayman Homes has recently started construction on the first home in the estate, with Waterlea located just west of Ipswich’s CBD.
New Middlesbrough manager Garry Monk believes the club “tick all the boxes” he was looking for and is targeting an immediate return to the Premier League following last season’s relegation.Monk has joined Boro on a three-year contract just over two weeks after leaving Leeds following his one-season stay at Elland Road, where he just missed out on a play-off place.The 38-year-old was expected to remain at Leeds beyond the end of the season but talks broke down following Andrea Radrizzani’s takeover, which led to Monk resigning.However, the former Swansea boss is delighted to take charge at the Riverside Stadium and believes the foundations are in place for a promotion push despite a disappointing season in the top flight last year.Monk told a press conference: “I became a manager out of a job and obviously I’m ambitious and want to be working and find that right challenge – that is something I have always wanted.“Speaking to the chairman Steve (Gibson) especially and all the guys at the club, it was that ambition and challenge that ticked all the boxes that I was looking for.“Everything I wanted in terms of the challenge I wanted was clear with Middlesbrough.”Gibson has spoken of his desire to ‘smash’ the Championship next season as Boro look to make their stay outside the top flight as short as possible.If the club manage to keep hold of the majority of their players, and with the possibility of money being available for new signings, then expectations will be high that Boro can bounce back at the first attempt.That will place extra scrutiny on Monk’s head, but he says he is ready to take it all in his stride.He said: “It’s fine. I’ve worked under pressure since I started becoming a manger and that’s how I work best. I think in football nowadays everything, particularly in management, is a high-pressured situation.“That (promotion) is the objective. There’s no getting away from that. That is the challenge that you want, I have signed for three years and I would like to make it at the first attempt but you know as well as me how difficult it is to do that.“You saw that the three teams that went down last season, only one made it back and in previous seasons gone by it has been very difficult for teams to make it back. But one thing that this club is, is that it is equipped, it’s ready and it’s determined to bounce back at the first time of asking.”There has also been plenty of speculation surrounding the future of captain Ben Gibson – who is currently on international duty with England – with several Premier League clubs reportedly interested in the central defender.Monk believes the 24-year-old will have an important role to play – if he remains at the club.“Ben is one of a number of players who are integral to this club and integral to making that step back to the Premier League. Right now, it is about being here, being happy and excited to be here working with these players and maybe adding to the squad,” he said.“The players we have got here have a lot of talent. You look from before, they had a good progression from the club, built its way to the Premier League and shows it’s a club that works in a good way.“The key is to make sure the club refocus and get ready with confidence to come again this season and back into it.”There are ongoing discussions as to whether former Boro interim boss Steve Agnew and coach Jonathan Woodgate will remain at the club, with James Beattie – who worked with Monk at Leeds – linked with a move to the north east.An announcement on Monk’s backroom staff is set to be made later in the week. 1 Garry Monk has signed a three-year deal as Middlesbrough manager
