Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has proposed an alternative budget for the Episcopal Church in 2013-15 for consideration at the 77th General Convention.
Mary Frances Schjonberg of Episcopal News Service reports:
The proposal is “more clearly based on missional strategy than the current draft proposed budget” approved in January by the church’s Executive Council, Jefferts Schori said in an eight-page message that accompanied the proposed budget.
She said that “the heart” of the Episcopal Church is mission “in partnership with anyone who shares that passion” and her proposed budget “is intended to help us reorient ourselves to that passion.”
“The strategic and spiritual principle of this budget proposal is that the church is most truly itself, the Body of Christ, when it lives and breathes mission,” she said.
