Speaking to the Soul: Keys of life

Speaking to the Soul: Keys of life

“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:13-20

Before the curtain was torn

from top to bottom

Already the divide was breached.

With keys jingling

in Peter’s pocket

We approach the door

Eyes focussed on the barrier.

Cautiously placing the key in the lock

the door swings wide.

But then we notice

the lack of walls!!!

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.
