Episcopalians in the spotlight this weekend

Episcopalians in the spotlight this weekend

Lately Episcopalians have been the go to people for in-depth exploration of religion.

The Rev. Dr. Wil Gafney has been podcasting and tweeting each of the Sunday episodes and is quoted in the Guardian from her posts on the History channel series The Bible: She thinks that some aspects of the series are solid but critiques the whitewashing of the Bible and treatment of women.

Gafney is an Episcopal priest and Professor at Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia.

The entire interview is here

A segment on Mary from CBS’ Sunday Morning features Dr. Deidre Good of General Theological Seminary as well as Professors Robin Jensen and Craig Evans.

See yesterday’s Lead for more.

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.
