The Consultation is a collaboration of progressive organizations within the Episcopal Church that partner to work for social justice. Before every triennial General Convention, we come together to develop a platform that will guide our shared advocacy and goals.
ISSUES, now the newsletter of the Consultation, first appeared as a daily commentary on events at the 1967 General Convention. Conceived in the living room of the late theologian William Stringfellow, ISSUES began as a voice for three organizations concerned for the mission and renewal of the Church; the Church Society for College Work, the Overseas Mission Society, and the National Industrial Mission. At succeeding General Conventions, a shifting group of organizations and movements in the Church have banded together to create ISSUES and to collaborate on a common commitment to call the Church to its witness in the name of Christ.
