The Scottish Episcopal Church will hold their annual General Synod this week, from June 11-13. Among their other tasks will be a decision to revise their marriage canons especially in light of the legalization of same-sex marriage in Scotland.
In the Magazine this month, we’re looking at marriage and the church’s long convoluted realtionship with it. In this essay, Maria Evans, reminds us that God’s love declares itself independent of our ability to name or control it.
Is there a time you’ve reacted from your old pattern of scarcity and fear, only to have been handed back abundance and love?
The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition. The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity. Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.
The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
