Standing Committee: Report to the 180th Convention of the Diocese of Indianapolis
The exceptional task of the Standing Committee this year was to continue the stewardship of the transition from Bishop X to Bishop XI, post-election.  The Standing Committee had charge of the consent process, the consecration events, and the Letters of Agreement with the Bishop-elect.  We had called two sub-committees early in the transition: the Search Committee and the Transition Committee.  With the work of the Search done, the bulk of the work passed to the Transition Committee who were responsible for the election held at the 179th Convention and all the sacred and celebratory events of the retirement of Cate Waynick, Bishop X, and the consecration of Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows, Bishop XI.  The election was historically significant and the embrace by the entire Episcopal Church was overwhelming.  The Transition Committee, led admirably by Jeff Brinkman, responded with Hoosier hospitality to guests from across the Church.  We are grateful ...
