ACNA 5th Provincial Council underway at Nashotah House

 

 

Archbishop Duncan address the Provincial Council.

Thanks to Baby Blue Online.

I am here in Wisconsin – first time in Wisconsin – for the 5th Provincial Council of the Anglican Church in North America.  The meeting at Adams Hall is standing room only and it’s been uplifting to see so many from so far come together to share mission and ministry.  Great to see the visitors that are here as well.  Stay tuned for updates!

It is my first time in Wisconsin – growing up in the Navy did not present an opportunity to live in the Mid-West.  In fact, the only time I went to the Mid-West was when I was 12 when we moved from Charleston, South Carolina to San Diego, California and camped our way across country.  My dad’s great-grandparents used to own a summer home in the northern part of Michigan which I have pictures of through the years when my dad visited as a child, but I have been in this part of the country.  Flew into Milwaukee yesterday.  The meetings are taking place at Nashotah House, an Anglican/Episcopal seminary.  It is in a lovely setting with lots of woods and lakes and fields surrounding it.  A contemplative place, it is a great environment to have a council such as this.

Update: New dioceses have been omitted into the ACNA and voting is underway for new members of the Executive Committee.  You can see photos here and here.
