Be happy. Bobby McFerrin attends an Episcopal Church.

Be happy. Bobby McFerrin attends an Episcopal Church.

Bobby McFerrin talks with Kim Lawton of Religion & Ethics Newsweekly about music for spiritual journey, and remembers wanting to be an Anglican monk. It’s worth sitting through the 30 second commercial for this excellent eight minute piece.

Watch Bobby McFerrin on PBS. See more from Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly.

Bobby was a member of St Aidan’s when he lived in San Francisco and when he is back in town he comes back to worship with us. One can tell he is a man of deep prayer during the liturgy. I just love me some Bobby McFerrin and am glad he is an Episcopalian!

“I’m spiritual, not religious.” I don’t know – he sounds pretty religious to me! Reads the Bible daily? Seeks out a church to attend when he travels? Identifies with the Episcopal Church (even loosely)? Feels music is his calling from God? Maybe we just have different definitions of that word – “religious” – I imagine most folks think it means “proselytizing” or “fundamentalist” or “self-righteous”?

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.
