On December 2, 2018, Jeff Diehl met with the St. Benedict’s Earth Care Committee to discuss environmental and climate change legislation that was considered at the 79th General Convention of The Episcopal Church in July 2018 in Austin, Texas. At General Convention, Jeff served as vice-chair of Legislative Committee 20 – Environmental Stewardship and Care of Creation.
General Convention meets every three years for a period of approximately 10 days. Over the past several triennia, General Convention has adopted practices that reduce the consumption of paper. Most notable is the distribution of iPads which provide access to digital documents including resolutions and worship booklets.
In keeping with the spirit of General Convention and the Care of Creation, all of the materials for this presentation are presented digitally for access during the presentation and for future use. The slide presentation is available in the second tab above, resolutions and resources can be accessed using the remaining tabs.
