What Now?

The Deputation is currently reviewing the legislation from General Convention and putting some priorities on the various materials. We will meet later in August and put together a list of the legislation that seems more important to publish for you. You can get a list of all legislation at:

The Deputation would like to be available to congregations and other Missouri organizations for a report on General Convention. If you are interested you may contact any of the deputies directly, or you can contact the Chair of the Deputation, The Very Rev. Ronald Clingenpeel, ( We are pleased and happy to make visits to your group to discuss the Convention. Please use us as a resource to the ministry of your congregation.

Please note that the articles that have appeared in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch have been lacking in clarity and background. This is especially true of the AP stories, which are really out of context. The LA Times and the NY Times have understood the Convention and its intricacies better. Please refer to those publications. We are currently attempting to contact the religion editor of the Post-Dispatch to offer information from our deputation.
