In the breaking of the bread

StoryKeep has produced a lovely video about St. Lydia’s Dinner Church in Brooklyn. One of St. Lydia’s leaders, Emily Scott, has contributed several essays, including this one, to the Cafe.

This is another one of the of the wildly different ways in which young people are enriching the worship of the church.

Lovely. We don’t do dinner church regularly at St John’s, but during our Lenten evening series of services, one week we shared dinner church, and it was a beautiful experience. What Emily Scott says in her essay was true. “I see Christ at this table; I see him when we sit down together to eat.”

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.
