Calling It Out: Laity and GC
Every General Convention we lift up and support the laity. They are the backbone of the Church. They are the majority. Yet, every Convention we still ask the laity, many of whom work outside the Church, to take off extra days because General Convention has to end on a Friday. If it would end on a Saturday, that would be one less day laity would have to take off. Are there so few clergy in our Church that a few of them in each Diocese cannot miss one Sunday so that the laity does not have to use all their vacation days to attend General Convention?
