we humans have hurts – hours old and decades old. We hold in every cell of our body griefs and losses, abuses which have left scars on us which ache from time to time; often at strange, seemingly inappropriate times.
So, in this little allegory, Jesus has turned the question around on the Chief Priests and elders. They had hoped to undermine his authority, but instead, he undermined theirs!
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.
