Creation Care & Your Top 7 interests from General Convention

The Larger Conversation's first episode is set for Tuesday, April 23, 2019, from 7 - 8 pm (Central Daylight Time), online using Zoom.

If you've not used Zoom before, or if you are an accomplished Zoomer, scroll/swipe down for Zoom-specific infos.


On our inaugural episode, hosts are the co-chairs of the Missouri Deputation that went to General Convention (GC) in 2018. Betty Bowersox is also a member of Grace Episcopal Church in Kirkwood, Missouri, and the Rev. Tamsen Whistler is the rector, or primary priest of Trinity Episcopal Church in St. Charles, Missouri.

The Topic/s

  • We'll leap right in to some Care of Creation resolutions from GC, including about recycling, not using water in plastic bottles, community gardens, using locally sourced food, green burials, planting trees, ….
  • Back in November, the hosts polled clergy and lay delegates to the Diocesan Convention about what their areas of interest were in terms of resolutions passed. And they developed our 'top ten' list, that we'll share tonight
  • And, some time for an overview of what GC is, and was, and will be!
