Christ Church Episcopal  Takes  Possession  of  Property  

With a transfer of keys, historic Christ Church on Johnson Square in Savannah came back into the possession of Christ Church Episcopal.  Earlier today, Mimi Jones and Margaret  Miller, the top lay leaders with the Episcopal congregation met privately with Joan Malley, the Parish Administrator of the departing congregation, where Malley handed off the keys to the property, in keeping with the recent ruling of the Georgia Supreme Court. Once the keys were in hand, the wardens walked silently into the church to pray. After a time of prayer, other members of Christ Church Episcopal arrived and were met by the Rev. Michael White, the parish’s rector, to pray at the altar before beginning work.

Secessionists in South Carolina, are you listening?



I pray those who departed may find a way to be reconciled, and return, in God’s Good Time…

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.
