Iowans Prepare for National Gathering

[Editor's note: This report was sent from a priest in the Diocese of Iowa.]

About a dozen Iowa clergy gathered before their fall clergy conference to share perceptions, concerns, and information about the efforts of The Episcopal Majority. Ron Osborne, a retired priest in that diocese, reports a good conversation. Several Iowans are planning to attend the Washington meeting, at the time of the installation of the new Presiding Bishop: Barb and Mel Schlachter, Joseph Smith and possibly Netha Breda.

Other Iowa clergy are supporting those attending financially through donations to their Clergy Association account.

As the diocesan convention is the week following the Washington gathering, plans are underway for a lunch meeting at the convention to hear back from those who participated.

Interest in The Episcopal Majority initiative seems strong in Iowa, and many have commented positively about the blog.
