We close out 2021 with Jarena Lee – a woman who fought for a woman’s right to preach in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, converted sinners, admonished backsliders, confronted Satan, and published an autobiography of all that she did. At a time when Black women were dismissed, she stood up and said no.
We’re continuing our look at what the BCP catechism offers on the sacraments, looking especially at the eucharist. Plus we talk a bit about snow and Lisa offers up a double-stumping.
Joe and Drew phone a friend, J. Leavitt Pearl, to figure out whether violence EVER fits into a Christian ethic.
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.
