Theme: Sustained in God’s Love

Wherever and however we gather, we are one body sustained in God’s love. In 2020, as we confront a pandemic, reckon with racism, and navigate the challenges of a changing church and culture, the practices that sustain us on the Way of Love matter more than ever. As we come together for the 152nd annual Convention of our Diocese, Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe and featured speaker Dr. Lisa Kimball of Virginia Theological Seminary will lead us in exploring how our shared mission, vision, and rule of life can hold us, heal us, and inspire us to share the love of Jesus in hard times.
