Unlike some Episcopal meetings, the Toledo gathering should slip under the media radar with no controversial issues on the agenda.
A group of about 30 clergy and lay delegates from northwest Ohio, bearing 93-page handbooks filled with pie charts and proposals, met last week in the basement cafeteria of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in West Toledo to discuss plans for the convention on Friday and Saturday.
“We’re beginning the process to get ready for convention. I’m not going to pretend to get you ready in an hour,” said the Rev. Bradford Purdom III, the Cleveland-based canon for congregations.
