By Ken Howard

Sometimes it just makes more sense to come reason together. But presently, though it has been done on rare occasions, our canons to not allow for it.

Proposed resolution D008 Amend Article I, Section 1 of the Constitution of TEC, simply makes it canonically lawful for the Presiding Officers of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies to call of a Joint Session at Genera Convention, if approved by a majority vote in the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies (and also if provided for in the canons).

It’s a no brainer, IMHO…
