Inaudible Graces

Inaudible Graces


Little breaths, every day.

Invisible memorials to

each of your ancestors.

Impermanent memorials to

each branch of your family tree,

Impossible memorials to

each and every face

that gave you yours.

Inaudible graces to

each and every little breath

from every face

you never knew.

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.
