The "Conversation" series

"Our goal is to produce and present live webcasts as a means of making newsmakers and important topics of The Episcopal Church available to as widespread an audience as possible," explained Mike Collins, Director of Digital Media. "We know the wider church has questions about these issues and we want to provide them with a forum to spark discussion and give some answers. We will be rolling out an interactive way to take part in these "conversations" which we expect to have ready for our second "conversation" in this series."

Future "conversations" will focus on immigration and the environment; dates will be announced.
