Here’s a link that will take to ally the resolutions being decided upon at General Convention: View_All_Legislation If you’re just interested in the “A” resolutions (resolutions from the Official Committees, Boards, Agencies, etc of the church) you can see just those. (B resolutions come from Bishops, C resolutions from Dioceses and D resolutions come from Deputies.)

Here’s the link to the software that I use to read the BCP, MP II and EP II on my Palm PDA: iSilo It’s shareware – and the trial period should be long enough for the whole of convention.

A PRAYER FOR GENERAL CONVENTION – By Pattty Hauze
Almighty and most powerful Lord, we gather together as one body in Christ to discern the ever changing times in which we live.
As the winds of change erode the path we walk, guide our thoughts back to the beginning where we have lost our way and show us once again the path to righteousness; a path marked by the brilliance of your light.
Take us back to the remembrance of your all inclusive love in which you asked us to do no more for others than to love.
May all decisions we make be made with guidance from the hand of your holy spirit.
May we be united as one faith, one people, one body in Christ; knowing that in all things, through all things, God is the True path we take.
May the winds of change open the doors of our souls, enlightening us to your will a new way, a new light, a new life in Chirst.
And we pray, most gracious Father, continue to challenge our minds, hearts and faith thus coming into full circle to draw us ever closer to your love.
All this we ask in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever. Amen.

I may mess around with it a bit and see if isilox can handle importing the data for people to carry around on their PDA’s.
So some Goober goes driving by the church last night. Rolls down his window and shouts “FAGGOT LOVING CHURCH”. Oh goody – more of this. I hope it doesn’t get worse as we move through General Convention.
