“This shelter-in-place time has been just such a disruption, but on a planetary scale. It has stopped our normal routines. It has startled a planet of humans and caused us to sit up and look around us. It has pushed us out of our complacency and our busy accumulation into a season of taking-stock.”
“So where do I find the voice of the good Shepherd? It’s in my very bones. I recognize the voice because it feels like the essence of me, a “me” not encompassed by the ego mind but as large as the Soul.”
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.
