The Presiding Bishop of TEC
at the General Synod of the Scottish Episcopal Church

The Most Reverend Katharine Jefferts Schiori was invited to speak to the General Synod of the Scottish Episcopal Church this afternoon. She was sitting in the pews during the final presentation of the Inter-Church Relations Committee and a presentation by a delegate at the Edinburgh 2010 Mission Conference. At long last she took the podium and spoked about elements of our shared history, the importance of the Baptismal Covenant in the Episcopal Church and in those churches in whose prayer books it appears in some form and the future shape of our shared ministry in the world.

There will be a video version of this appearing on the Scottish Episcopal Church website and Kelvin's blog. In the mean time, you have an audio version of what was said during Bishop Katharine's talk to us this afternoon. Enjoy!

Update: The Convenor of the Information and Communication Board, Kelvin Holdsworth, had the opportunity to interview the PB at General Synod. That interview can be found HERE.

I love our PB. Thank you so much for making this available. I feel so fortunate to be part of TEC during these both heartbreaking and exhillarating times in our Communion. I share her good wishes, and prayers for all of you during your Synod!

Thanks for posting this, RR! I feel that TEC is often portrayed as an insular, navel-gazing church rather than what we are: one with a worldwide vision and very active ministry addressing diversity on many different levels. It was energizing to hear the PB pass this message on and issuing an invitation to continue our journey together.
