The Seraphim, a level of angelic beings in Christianity and Judaism which fly around God’s throne crying out “Holy, Holy, Holy” are equated with fire because of the passion with which they encourage the unveiling of God’s Kingdom.
Why was God so hard on Moses and Aaron? What’s the big deal, anyway? Did God change his mind about hitting stones? These are all good questions too, but I suspect the question Moses had was simply, WHY?
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.
