[b]Auburn Faber Traycik[/b], editor, The Christian Challenge magazine, published since 1962 and the only independent hardcopy publication offering orthodox believers a broad range of news on the Anglican communion. VOL reports during the convention will also be made available on TCC's website to expand coverage. Based in Washington, DC, Mrs. Traycik has been reporting on Anglican affairs for 20 years.
[b]The Rev. Dr. Peter Toon[/b], president of the Prayer Book Society, an authority on Anglicanism's peerless liturgist, Thomas Cranmer, and one of the world's leading reformed catholic thinkers.

[b]Robert Turner[/b], VOL's webmaster will facilitate and coordinate daily reports and digests. Stories will be posted daily to the website (www.virtueonline.org) with a digest of stories sent out to our email list every two days. He is based in Virginia. He can be reached at: email@example.com for any queries about how stories are posted or difficulties you may have receiving stories.
If you wish to be added to our email distribution list, please follow the instructions on this page.
In addition, orthodox theologians and bishops will be consulted on stories. A number of knowledgeable persons will also write opinion pieces for VirtueOnline's AS EYE SEE IT section at the VOL website.
VOL's readers are free to send commentary pieces as they feel lead. A special section will be set up at the VOL website for General Convention reports.
While neither the Archbishop of Canterbury nor a delegation from the Panel of Reference will be in attendance at GC2006, this convention will be the most watched in North American religious life and witnessed by millions of Anglicans worldwide, tens of thousands of priests and hundreds of bishops from the Global South.
In the wake of ECUSA’S serious deviations from Anglican Communion sexuality policy, including the approval and consecration of gay cleric Gene Robinson as Bishop of New Hampshire, the U.S. church's future and standing within the Communion are on the line at this General Convention. The response it gives to the wider Communion will be critical to Anglican Primates (Provincial leaders) in determining whether or not ECUSA has separated from the rest of the global church.
This convention will be a make or break time for tens of thousands of orthodox Episcopalians.
