Diocese of West Tenessee clergy participate in ALS ice bucket challenge

As people across the country participate in the ALS “Ice Bucket Challenge”, some Episcopalians are getting into the act. At 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August 21st,, the bishop of West Tennessee and a group of clergy from the Episcopal Diocese of West Tennessee gathered downtown on the steps of St. Mary’s Cathedral to dump water over their heads in support of the ALS Association’s ice bucket campaign.

The Reverend Hester Mathes, Curate of Holy Communion in Memphis, issued the challenge, and participants included the Rt. Reverend Don E. Johnson, bishop of the diocese; the Reverend Sandy Webb, priest in charge at Church of the Holy Communion; the Reverend Randy McCloy, deacon at Holy Communion; the Reverend Christopher Girata, rector of Calvary Episcopal; and the Reverend Audrey Gonzales, deacon at Calvary.

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.
