WALKABOUTS/CONVERSATIONS BEGIN TODAY, 12 APRIL
The Walkabouts/Conversations in the search for the XV bishop of the Diocese of South Carolina begin today, 12 April 2021, and continue on the 13th and 14th. Find the details here .
According to the diocesan newsletter, the morning sessions will be available to the participants on Zoom and everyone else live on Youtube. They will also be recorded and posted on Youtube for later viewing. The morning session begins at 9:00 a.m. with Morning Prayer. From 10:00 to 12:00 the candidates will answer questions presented to them in a "Panel Discussion." At 12:00 p.m. there will be a Noonday Prayer. The informal evening sessions will be on Zoom but not on Youtube.
The question and answer period from 10 to 12 should be quite interesting since the five candidates will be answering questions that have been sent in from around the diocese.
I expect to return with comments after the three days of conversations. Meanwhile, I encourage everyone to watch as much as one can of the morning sessions on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. It is highly probable that one of the five nominees will become the next bishop of the Diocese of South Carolina.
