I flick the switch bringing darkness into the room. “I love you. I’m not going anywhere.”

Glimpses of Hope

“God invites us to stop and listen, to take a deep breath, to trust that we are not alone. In our walking, taking one step after another, we catch glimpses of hope – the gentle breeze, the sun’s warmth, light breaking through, a star-filled sky, birds chirping, mushrooms, the hand of a neighbor reaching out to us. Signs of God’s presence in our midst. Keep walking forward with eyes wide open and be surprised.”

Maybe you’re wondering what small gifts you have to give, or perhaps you’re overwhelmed with the tasks to get through each day. “Let nothing be wasted,” Jesus says to the disciples and to us. Nothing is lost on God.”

Do Not be Anxious

“It’s August of 2020 and to think that we should not be anxious about anything is almost laughable.

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.
