Rather trying, at least for me, second day Convention yesterday. We spent the morning in the House of Bishops trying to restructure the church and/or craft a budget, one resolution at a time by voting down resolutions with funding attached rather than referring them to Program, Budget and Finance for their consideration. And we ended the day with a confusing use of the “Consent Calendar” which prompted me to remind the House that this calendar is only to be used for “non controversial resolutions” and is to be voted on en masse. If one wishes to debate a resolution, one only needs to find two other bishops to have it removed from the Consent Calendar. Why do we have to re-learn our rules of the House at every Convention?
