November 2018

Dear Friend,

We cover a lot of important ground in this issue. To start, we take a look at the ways in which the Church Insurance Companies support the Church’s work with regard to the 79th General Convention Resolution 2018-C009, Becoming a Sanctuary Church. Find out about the coverage we provide as well as discovering some safety tips for Episcopal institutions operating as sanctuary churches in The Church as a Sanctuary.

And, we are excited for the approaching holidays and increased activity in the church. Here are some safety tips to help you enjoy the busy times:

We hope you enjoy this issue. Email me with any feedback or questions you may have, and feel free to forward this publication to others who may benefit from it.

Happy reading!
