Presiding Bishop will host October 16 webcast

Get your questions ready! Think she'll take any from the orthodox? From EpiscopalLife Online:

A live webcast with Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori on October 16, and the second monthly edition of "Episcopal Life Focus" -- a half-hour video "multicast" featuring church mission, ministries and news -- are upcoming program highlights from Episcopal Life Media.

Co-produced with Trinity Church Wall Street, the webcast will begin at 3 p.m. Eastern time on October 16 and is planned to feature the Presiding Bishop's responses to questions asked via telephone and email during the program.

Access will be available through both the websites of the Episcopal Church and Trinity Wall Street.

Meanwhile, the new edition of Episcopal Life Focus, set for release online October 11, will feature coverage of the House of Bishops September meeting in New Orleans, the Archbishop of Canterbury's visit there, and the hands-on post-hurricane rebuilding and pastoral work offered by the bishops and spouses along the Gulf Coast. . .

. . . "The idea for Episcopal Life Focus came out of our nightly closed-circuit and webcast news programs at General Convention in Columbus in 2006," [the Rev. Jan] Nunley [executive editor of Episcopal Life Media] said.

Huummm . . . I personally think they feel the need to compete with AnglicanTV!

"We wanted to present more of the day-to-day life and mission of the Episcopal Church. Through this new program, we'll bring in more voices and visions of the church and the Anglican Communion than we've ever been able to do before."

Upcoming editions of Episcopal Life Focus will air the second Thursday of each month: November 8, December 13.
