NEVA RAE FOX: Good afternoon from Atlanta. This is Neva Rae Fox, and we have been two days here with the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music, who have been discussing a great deal of many things that our panelists are about to tell you all about.
I do want to give you a few statistics first. We have had 240 people attend this meeting. Of those 195 are Deputies from 98 dioceses.
Our panelists for today are the Rev. Dr. Ruth Meyers, chair of the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music; Dr. Bonnie Anderson, who is the president of the House of Deputies; and Bishop Tom Ely of Vermont, who is also a member of the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music.
