If our existence is simplified to the finite time spent communicating and coupling with others on our tiny rock shooting around the sun, then we are compelled to have some sort of lasting impact on our culture in order to be remembered, and thus, live on.  On the other hand, our relationship with God promises an everlasting afterlife in heaven. There is no need to be remembered ‘as it were’ with the ability to reconnect with others for an eternity.  Of course, this is only allowed if a person has lived well enough to pass through the pearly gates in the first place… The alternative being hell. Therefore, we all should endeavor to live well enough to reconnect in our heavenly afterlife. A coupling with the Devil is discouraged, to say the least.

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.
