Magazine Submissions

We also welcome your submissions to our Magazine section relating to the theme of the month. We seek to post only original material but will consider items published elsewhere from time to time; please let us know when and where such articles appeared before. We do not accept sermons. All submissions will be reviewed by our editorial team, though not all submissions can or will be posted. Submissions or proposals can be sent to us at jon.white@episcopalcafe.com. Our guiding principles are that it be short and that it be true.

 

Monthly Themes:

January: Is there an emerging Political theology arising in the U.S. and elsewhere?  Do Standing Rock, Black Lives Matter and the emergence of Trumpism require or point to a new response akin to the emergence of Liberation Theology in Latin America in the mid-twentieth century?

February: Why are some Places holy?  Why do we imbue sanctity on some places and not on others?  We often claim that the church is the people, but we also love our buildings; how do those buildings serve our ministries and how might they interfere?

March: The Christian tradition (and Scripture) is founded on Conversion, on getting people to give up an old way of life and adopt the Way of Christ.  But conversion can be a tricky subject.  What are your stories of conversion?  Do we desire the conversion of all peoples or not? And, can we pursue interfaith cooperation and conversion simultaneously?

We are looking for:
  • personal essays – up to 2500 words
  • photo essays – as many as six images.  Please confirm permission to use the images if you are not the photographer
  • non-fiction narratives – up to 2500 words
  • videos – no more than 3 minutes in length
  • Got an idea? Send us a proposal and we’ll see
