The Consultation launches first ISSUES for #GC78

The Consultation launches first ISSUES for #GC78

the Consultation, a cooperative effort of several progressive groups of Episcopalians, has published their first installment of ISSUES for the upcoming General Convention.

ISSUES first appeared as a daily commentary on events at the 1967 General Convention. Conceived in the living room of the late theologian William Stringfellow, ISSUES began as a voice for three organizations concerned for the mission and renewal of the Church; the Church Society for College Work, the Overseas Mission Society, and the National Industrial Mission. At succeeding General Conventions, a shifting group of organizations and movements in the Church have banded together to create ISSUES and to collaborate on a common commitment to call the Church to its witness in the name of Christ.
Current member organizations are:

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.
