The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church is dedicated to preserving and disseminating information about the history of the Episcopal Church through promoting preservation, through publication of a scholarly journal and cooperation with other like-minded organizations.

They are planning to have a booth at General Convention and to host a Banquet on June 23rd with historian Philip Barlow as the featured speaker.  Philip Barlow is a Harvard-trained scholar specializing in American religious Barlow-Phil-349x450history. His research interests have ranged over American religious and historical geography, concepts of time in secular and religious society, and the problem of suffering and evil. The New Historical Atlas of Religion in America, co-authored with Edwin Scott Gaustad, examined the implications of religion’s connections with place and created hundreds of maps portraying the religious composition of the United States over time.

FYI, the price for the banquet goes up after June 12th, so register now if you are interested in preserving and promoting the history of the Episcopal Church

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.
