Sixth Annual Synod of the Gulf Atlantic Diocese
Seventh Annual Synod of the Gulf Atlantic Diocese
You are invited to attend the Seventh Annual Synod of the Gulf Atlantic Diocese. All diocesan clergy; certified lay delegates; and all guests that want to attend will gather on Friday evening November 6th at St. Peter's Anglican Church in Tallahassee. A reception beginning at 5:00 PM will be followed by dinner at 6:00 and the opening worship service begins at 7:30. The meeting will continue on Saturday with doors opening at 8:00 for coffee and light breakfast. There will be booths representing many of the ministries of the diocese available Friday evening and throughout Saturday. Synod will be called to order at 9:00 AM and will conclude by 3:30 PM. Get more Information. . .
As many of us wrestle with how to approach the subject, I thought it might be helpful to share one very powerful example. Feel free to borrow from it (with some attribution of course). I especially commend the resources Taylor quotes along the way. I also found the question and answer section an interesting way to engage the congregation in the process.
