Follow the Bishop's Election on Saturday

From Karin Hamilton, our Diocesan Editor:
Your diocesan editor will be reporting live from the Convention this weekend (God willing). During each day, you can stay current by checking the home page of the diocesan website for updates. The homepage will also carry a Twitter feed (short messages that show up as they are written and sent). More options: you can join and follow EpiscopalCT to get "Tweets" on your computer or mobile phone, or if you use Tweetdeck or similar, search for our hashtag, #epct, to find related Tweets and contribute to the conversation.

And... Kurt Huber set up a Twitter group (or hub) on Twub for #epct, so those who want to can join and watch and/or contribute. Visit:

It's true, not everyone wants or needs real-time notices. The diocesan web pages will be updated from time to time during the day, and an eNews will be sent out at the end of each day with a summary of events. Also, a photographer will be capturing some of the people and events over both days, and these will later be compiled into an online slideshow.

Plus, of course, local reports from your parish clergy, delegates and alternates. And a summary of major decisions, published in the next diocesan newspaper.
For those who follow me (Rev_Kurt on twitter) I will also be tweeting results from Saturday.
