Meet the Deputies, part 2.

San Diego is represented at GC2012 by our Bishop, and our Deputies, 4 each from the clergy and the laity. We asked the members of the delegation to tell us a little about themselves and to finish the following sentence: "My hope for GC2012 is...." .  We'll be sharing the responses with you over the week.  Here's group 2:

The Rev. Paul Carmona is part-time Associate Rector at St. Mark's in City Heights, San Diego and teaches humanities, philosophy, and religious studies at Cuyamaca College in El Cajon.

My biggest hope for GC 2012: It is my hope that this General Convention will make significant advances toward transforming the Episcopal Church into a truly mission-oriented church that effectively proclaims the Good News to the diverse peoples among whom we live--and particularly to those who are somehow forgotten or ignored by us, owing to their ethnicity, culture, socio-economic status, disability, sexual orientation, etc.

  My hope for GC2012: that all of our deliberations that might appear to be about matters of budget and governance, will be in the context of the Mission of the Church - to proclaim the Gospel, and to serve those in need.

The Rev. Bill Zettinger is Deacon at St Bartholomew's

My biggest hope for GC2012 is moving forward so all can receive communion at the table. Not just the baptized!
