Helping TREC re-imagine the Episcopal Church 4

Helping TREC re-imagine the Episcopal Church 4

The Task Force for Re-imagining the Episcopal Church is asking for feedback from across the church. They propose four prompts to stimulate conversation.

We have been rolling those prompts out in two and a half hour intervals today. This is the last.

What one thing could you do to help The Church through this change?

Pray and tend my own (personal, parish, and diocesan) gardens.

I read scripture and imagine church. Then I go to church and preach about what I imagine–revealing the presence of God in Christ by the living, breathing Body of Christ that happens to meet within the walls of that particular building. If everything else doesn’t support that, then it’s time to start over. Re-imagining doesn’t work if we never had a vision or purpose that doesn’t require structures like committees, let alone walls.

Preach the Gospel, celebrate the Sacraments, and help get rid of committees, commissions, and task forces.

Ann Fontaine

Continue to preach the Gospel and celebrate the sacraments.

Proof is in the pudding. The attempt to follow the 4 prompts blew up on me – Obamacare is not alone in its IT problems.

As for the 1 thing to help the church: abandon such jargonistic commissions and corporate leadership novelties. Our church reeks of such things which most folk ignore or reject.

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.
