With Bishop Steve Lane and all deputies safely back in Maine, the 78th General Convention is history as well as historic.

House of Deputies News has a comprehensive round-up story titled “Deputies sprint to the finish” here. We offer a last few photos of Convention:

[Editor’s note: I promise to not divulge the identity of the deputy who snapped the photos of his or her fellow deputies at the airport as they slept and/or prayed for their red-eye flight home.]

The Diocese of West Tennessee's deputation sat directly across from the media box. They designated the late B.B. King and his guitar Lucille, their honorary 9th deputy. Pretty much love that.
