Help support the Episcopal Café

The Episcopal Café is an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. The Café aims to tell the story of progressive Christianity in the Anglican tradition. It is, at heart, a ministry of witness and testimony because we believe that following Christ compels us share the story of God’s work with and in the world.

But like all ministry, it needs the support of many to make it thrive. If you value what the Café offers then we invite you to be one of our supporters and make a donation.

Your donation will not only help us to provide the news, commentary and reflection you love, but will also enable us to expand our storytelling abilities. And it will ensure we have the technical support we need to continue improving our site so that you can easily access all of our great content.



We also thank all of those who have made a donation in 2014

. . . when this moderator halts the process of censorship, of which I have a belly full. Not til then, sorry. 🙂 I have no parish to go to, Sundays. This is all there is for me, out here in the countryside. And it has become a strain on my spiritual resources, to fail continually or able to be found politically correct enough that I can actually get a friendly greeting or comment. Wanna talk about it? [phone number deleted by Cafe editor] one spirit to another?

Might I recommend, for online worship:

Censorship is the official suppression of content in accordance with public morality. While I have “unapproved” your posts, it has never been because I disagreed with the morality; rather, I disagreed with the relevancy of your comments in the context of the stories you chose to post them on.

No blog is under any moral or legal obligation to provide you a platform for your varied and inchoate expressions; you are not silenced and have many other platforms on which you express yourself. Not every expression is appropriate, or interesting, on every platform.

When you are on topic and avoid derailing, we typically let your comments stand. When you post speculation unsupported by fact, or rehash your personal ideology on a story that is only tenuously related, we oftentimes moderate your comments, because they stand in stark contrast to our goal of providing a platform for conversations.

This isn’t an official statement by the site, but rather, my perspective in moderating your comments when it’s my turn to do so.

Thank you!

OK, Sad Lab face is cheating… ;-X

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.
