Is there a hidden spiritual world here in Minnesota?
Does our interconnectedness create opportunities for reconciliation and renewal?
Join your friends from across the Episcopal Church in Minnesota in exploring these and other questions with Convention Keynote Speaker, the Rt. Rev. Mark MacDonald, at the 2012 Annual Convention of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota.
Exploring our interconnectedness and using that as a basis for discerning “who is our neighbor?”, Bishop MacDonald brings to Convention his personal and deeply sacred reflections on the opportunities for reconciliation and renewal we encounter right here in Minnesota. Preview Bishop MacDonald’s reflections in the Episcopal Story Project video now available by clicking the video above.
The Annual Convention of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota will be held September 21-22 at Jackpot Junction Casino, Morton, on the Lower Sioux Indian Community. Convention is being planned to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the execution of 38 Dakota warriors in Mankato, MN, the largest mass execution in US history.
Bishop MacDonald currently serves as the National Indigenous Anglican Bishop for the Anglican Church of Canada. He previously served for 10 years as the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Alaska and was Canon Missioner for Training in the Episcopal Church of Minnesota. He also served as vicar of St. Antipas’ Church, Redby, and St. John-in-the-Wilderness Church, Red Lake.
