The Episcopal Church Task Force on the Study of Marriage wants videos from Episcopalians throughout the church.

The videos should focus on the topic: Give us your first name and tell a one minute story about your relationship or one you know well in which you have seen the image of God.

“We invite Episcopalians to prepare, produce and submit a one-minute video sharing their thoughts and feelings that we can use in our reporting,” commented Task Force member the Rev. Canon W. (Will) H. Mebane, Jr., Diocese of Ohio. “The videos don’t need to be professionally recorded – feel free to use a Smartphone or flip cam.”

The videos should be sent to

These videos will be used as part of upcoming presentations and reports to the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies.
