Art has a power to move us in ways that intellectual knowledge or physical action cannot do. Music, stories, performance and visual art somehow manage to connect us with feelings buried deep inside ourselves, or in empathy with others beyond us.
“It is here on earth, in this world of corruption, evil, sorrow and darkness, that Christ meets us and claims us. When we receive him — when we see everything that exists in the light of a transformative love — we become children not of the desires and needs of the ego but of God.”
The Incarnation speaks as much about what human life means as it does about God’s power
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.
