A140 Diversity Guidelines for Episcopal Elections

Original version

Resolved, the House of _______ concurring, That Section III (Diversity) of the Blue Book Report of the Task Force on the Episcopacy be provided to dioceses at the beginning of their search process along with such other information with respect to diversity as the pilot Board for Episcopal Transitions may deem appropriate, all such information to be updated at least triennially by that Board.


The Church should develop and distribute to electing dioceses a set of policies for best practices in fostering diversity in a search. The diversity section from the Task Force’s Blue Book report is a sensible place to start this ongoing effort. As a best practice that section would be updated at least triennially as the Church learns more about what does and does not work.
