The Diocese of California is offering a series of webinars on being the Beloved Community and offers a new way to measure church vitality:

As a natural outgrowth of the Beloved Community visioning process and the Area Ministry initiative — and in creative dialogue with the church vitality efforts of the diocesan Executive Council — Bishop Marc called upon leading ministry innovators to share their skills with the Diocese of California, and to make their expertise available in a flexible online format. The monthly be::community webinars are open to all (with preference given to ministry teams) and feature live conversations with Bishop Marc. The course video content is available to anyone, at any time —

The be::community webinars offer an opportunity for congregational leaders to grow in skill and commitment to excellence in ministry through a multi-year collaborative learning process. The evening one-hour online gatherings provide an opportunity for participants — in small groups or alone, in churches or at home — to connect with each other and Bishop Marc through prayer, study, and reflection on ministry.

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.
