What’s happening on Day 5 of General Convention?

Today, legislative committees are meeting from 7:30 to 9:00 am, with worship at 9:30 am (Utah time).

Watch live at 10:30 am our time on the Media Hub.

Following the service will be a brief legislative session from 11:00 am to 12:45 pm.  Legislative Committee Chairs will meet together for lunch today, followed by a four-hour afternoon legislative session.

The House of Deputies and the House of Bishops will meet separately for those legislative sessions. Since the General Convention is a bicameral (or two-house) body, whatever legislation one of them passes must then be sent to the other for concurrence.

You can watch either session live on the General Convention Media Hub as well. Here’s what they’ll be talking about:

House of Deputies – view the calendars.

House of Bishops – view the calendars.
