“Our sisters and brothers in the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church have asked us to make [our] solidarity visible by participating in “Confession, Repentance, and Commitment to End Racism Sunday” on Sunday, September 6.”
Creation Justice Ministries Executive Director Shantha Ready Alonso said, “Prayer is powerful. Uniting in prayer will give us the spiritual strength we need to face the most daunting challenge humanity has known: to heal and restore God’s web of creation before it is too late.”
“During the last 15 months, we have continued to learn much about our School and the students it serves. … Our ongoing work will be even more difficult having witnessed the challenges of the trial, but it remains our responsibility to make our School the safest place possible.”
the martyr’s wheel rises
the break beatified
by a fragrant halo
silvery traces of the soul’s flight
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.
