This General Convention, I hope that we can be reminded of the importance of ministry to others. To fearlessly love all peoples in the church would greatly benefit us in creating a sustainable church.
The Rev. Michael Russell, Rector, All Souls Point Loma
My wish for GC 2012: that we will be nimble and adaptive in moving our Church into the future.
My biggest hope for GC2012 is that we discovera new way of doing so many things. We cannot do what we have always done and try to figure out how to do it with less money. We need to discern what our mission truly is and how best to strive to fulfill it and live into it. We need to find the courage to step out and try. And we need to strive to be the kind of people we keep telling others they should be.

My hope for GC2012: To be ready to serve where needed as an Alternate, returning better equipped to support our great Diocese.
