“If Jesus came back today, where would he go to make his mark?” the Rev. Steve Rottgers, Diocese of West Missouri’s canon to the ordinary and Awakening organizer, asked rhetorically.

Two places, he suggested, would be the vibrant P&L, as it is known, and Hammons Field, a minor-league baseball park in downtown Springfield, Missouri. Springfield is in the southern part of a diocese that stretches north to south from Iowa to Arkansas.

In Kansas City, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and others will have the Kansas City Live stage from noon to 3 p.m. The venue covers an entire city block and features two surrounding levels of restaurants, taverns and nightspots. The stage area seats 800 people but thousands potentially will be wandering through the venues. Some will be headed for the No Other Pub, which is hosting a sold-out Derby viewing party beginning at 2 p.m. to raise money for two local children’s charities. Some will also be streaming into the P&L District for the 3 p.m. Garth Brooks concert at the Sprint Center next door.

As one who was present for the Kansas City event, it was a wonderful time. As the time went on, there were more and more folks who had the chance to see Christians literally “in the market place,” proclaiming good news.

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.
