Integrity celebrates 40 years

Integrity celebrates 40 years

Forty years ago Louie Clay (né Crew) and friends began Integrity to change the Episcopal Church. From sending mimeographed newsletters (in plain brown wrappers if needed) and eucharists held in unpublicized hotel rooms at General Convention, from deep disappointment as legislation towards equality was defeated, to websites, Facebook presence, witness of presence and electric joy as the Episcopal Church moved closer and closer to full equality of rights and rites — Integrity kept working.

Read the history here (pdf). There is still much work to be done in the church and around the world – but today we celebrate.

In this extended interview, the Right Reverend Michael Curry, Bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina, talks with Vivian Taylor, the executive director of Integrity USA, about the organizations work across the country.

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.
